'The roadshows have proven extremely popular and in fact, 580 people visited our latest roadshow at the London Mela, the highest number of visitors to any of the roadshows so far. There are still 14 roadshows to go and these will be running in locations throughout West London until early October.'

The public consultation on the proposed West London Tram runs until 8 October.

The West London Tram is a proposal for a 20km tramway that would run from Uxbridge to Shepherds Bush, serving town centres of Uxbridge, Southall, Hanwell, West Ealing, Ealing, Acton and Shepherds Bush. The WLT would serve around 40 stops on the route, enabling passengers to travel from Uxbridge to Shepherds Bush in about an hour.
