The Mayor of London, Boris Johnson, has backed Conservative Parliamentary Candidate, Hannah David, in her campaign to bring Crossrail to Harrow.

The Mayor visited Harrow and Wealdstone Station on Friday to promote the scheme that Mrs David has been fighting for since last year.

The project had already received a serious boost in August when Transport Secretary, Patrick McLaughlin, announced a feasibility study into the scheme, which would see Crossrail extend to Hertfordshire with a stop at Harrow and Wealdstone Station.  Since then, Mrs David has been gathering local support and lobbying key stake holders to push the project through to completion.

On Friday, the Mayor was greeted by a group of local activists who have been working with Mrs David to secure the Crossrail link for Harrow.  People of all ages had turned out to show the Mayor that this is a project that the people of Harrow very much need and want.

Following the event, Mr Johnson said, “Hannah David is doing an absolutely brilliant job for Harrow, particularly by campaigning to get Crossrail to stop here.  That would be transformational for this part of the city and Hannah is leading the Campaign.”

    That would simply be fantastic for Harrow.Let’s hope Hannah David with the help of the Mayor of London manage to put Harrow on the map for Crossrail since it will give a huge boost to the areas in the vicinity.Good luck,Harrow.We deserve a share in this pie just like other who have benefitted enormously from its introduction to their part of the world.
