Mike has tabled Early Day Motion 2853 which congratulates the Old London Underground Company for its efforts to open up London’s ghost stations to the public.
Founded by budding entrepreneur Ajit Chambers, The Old London Underground Company is working with Transport for London and the Ministry of Defence on proposals to open up for the first time some of London’s abandoned Underground stations. For more information, please see www.theoldlondonundergroundcompany.com.
Commenting, Mike said: “The London Underground network has played a important role in our nation’s history. A number of stations have been abandoned over the years and have remained completely untouched. I think that is a wonderful idea to open some of them up to the public which is why I tabled the Early Day Motion. I look forward to taking a trip to see some this unique preserved history.”
