Boris Backs Whitton Conservative's Station Campaign

The campaign we are leading to get Whitton station uplifted is bearing fruit. Following his visit to Whitton (using the station), the Mayor of London, Boris Johnson said, in answer to question put to him by Cllr Tony Arbour during Mayor’s Question Time, “I want to get Whitton Station done. I think it will be done.”

“Its heartening that our campaign is gaining momentum,” says Grant Healy, “and that fellow Conservatives, including London’s Mayor and our local GLA representative, are backing us pro actively to bring much needed improvements to Whitton Station.”

Cllr Gareth Elliott said: "It is fantastic that the Mayor supports our campaign to improve Whitton Station. Hopefully we can now use this endorsement to encourage Network Rail and South West Trains to bring forward any considerations for updating the station."
