Lambeth Cyclists today welcomed the appointment of Val Shawcross as Deputy Mayor with responsibility for transport by new Mayor of London Sadiq Khan.
Val is the former London Assembly Member for Lambeth and Southwark and we worked closely with her over her years as our Assembly Member on cycling and sustainable transport issues. We are pleased that London’s transport is in Val’s safe hands.
In 2015 in recognition of her important work on the London Assembly and especially in promoting cycling on the Assembly Transport Committee Val was awarded an LCC award as Cycling Champion of the year together with London Assembly Member Caroline Pidgeon. We are pleased to see that Caroline has been elected as Chair of the Transport Committe.
