Mary Macleod Urges Mayor To 'Listen To Chiswick'
Hands over petition on Piccadilly Line trains stopping at Turnham Green
Local MP Mary Macleod was joined by Chiswick councillors and campaigners yesterday (Oct 2) to personally deliver the petition calling for Piccadilly line trains to stop at Turnham Green, to London Mayor Boris Johnson at City Hall.
The petition contains the signatures of nearly 4,000 residents who want Piccadilly Line trains to stop at their local station during the day.

Transport for London’s (TfL’s) public consultation on the matter will close at midnight on Monday 7th October, so this is the last chance for residents to complete the online survey and petition.
Local councillors John Todd, Paul Lynch and Peter Thompson also accompanied the MP to City Hall.
Mary said: ‘It was great to take the voices of Chiswick residents directly to the Mayor’s doorstep. Stopping the Piccadilly line at Turnham Green station throughout the day will improve lives and is something Chiswick residents have wanted for decades. I am pleased that so many have decided to support our campaign.
"Well over 13,000 people have already replied to TfL’s consultation, but we must ensure that Chiswick is well represented in the responses. So please encourage your friends, family and neighbours to complete the online survey. It is crucial that as many people as possible answer “yes” to both questions 7 and 8 on the survey. I am positive that we can find a way to stop Piccadilly line trains at Turnham Green without disrupting the rest of the line.’
Alongside TfL’s consultation, there is an online petition that has gained over 2,400 signatures, calling on TfL and the Mayor of London to take action to stop Piccadilly line trains at Turnham Green
