Hackney residents have been campaigning for the Tube to come to the borough for years. We thought we were finally going to get on the Underground with the East London Line Extension. But now Transport for London has dashed those hopes by announcing that when the line is extended, it will be privatised.

Support Hackney TUC's campaign to stop privatisation and bring a public London Underground line to Hackney. Click the title above or 'read more' below to see and sign our petition.

Letter: Why The East London Line Should Stay Public

Submitted by Janine on Mon, 09/10/2006 - 18:00.

To The Hackney Gazette

Last month, I wrote to the Gazette opposing the planned privatisation of the East London Line and challenging Ken Livingstone and TfL to give one good reason why the new 'London Overground' should be run by a private operator. As far as I can see, they have not replied. Perhaps Gazette readers will draw their own conclusions.
