Kiley brings Tube battle to ICE


LONDON'S CONTROVERSIAL transport commissioner, Bob Kiley is to address the ICE on 5 March.

The lecture 'Rebuilding the capital's transport system' offers Kiley a chance to articulate his strong views on the future of London's longneglected transport system.

Since his appointment just over a year ago, Kiley has been in almost constant battle with the Government over its planned £13bn private financed upgrade of the London Underground.

Kiley's department, Transport for London (TfL) is due to take over the operation of the Underground network once contracts for the 30-year public private partnership (PPP) have been signed.

However, Kiley branded the scheme 'fatally flawed, ' and attempted to block the move through the courts.
