A PERMANENT memorial will be created in honour of London transport workers who have died from Covid-19, it was confirmed today.
Transport for London (TfL) released designs of a planned space in the City of London featuring a cherry tree, plaque and benches.
Subject to planning permission, it could be built by next summer.
TfL said that 98 transport workers on the capital’s bus and Tube services have died with coronavirus, as well as a number of taxi and private hire drivers.
London Mayor Sadiq Khan said: “I am devastated that 98 London transport workers have died from Covid, and each and every one of them will always be in my thoughts.
“As the son of a bus driver this is deeply personal to me, and I can’t help but think how it could have been my dad or his colleagues or friends.”
The Labour mayor said he hoped that the memorial would provide solace to those who have lost loved ones and honour the heroism of key workers.
