There were quite a number of April Fools related transport stories, but this was simply the best:
A group of local councils has lashed out at plans rubber-stamped by City Hall for a new high-speed Tube line across west London.
With just over a month until the general election, the current administration has pounced upon the opportunity to spend unused funds generated from welfare cuts.
The £4.6bn Eton Line, announced yesterday by Boris Johnson, has generated outrage across Berkshire, Hounslow and Richmond where earthworks will commence next year.
The line will have just two stations, one at Eton, and a terminus at Westminster.
It certainly would have been handy for the current Mayor, but I doubt that we will see another old Etonian sitting behind the curved desk at City Hall any time soon?
