What we stand for and support
Streets are for People
We want London's roads to be safe for pedestrians and cyclists and for children to be able to walk and cycle to school in safety.
A network of such quality that it will attract an increasing percentage of journeys to be made using this mode rather than by car or private hire vehicle. The network needs good coverage and to be safe, speedy and more accessible.
Road user pricing that funds improved public transport and reduces congestion and pollution from the tyre - road surface. Internal combustion to electric power is good / to be encouraged but there must also be modal shift so cars are less dominant, leading to a reduction in congestion, particulate matter pollution and injuries and deaths.
Freight Transport & Deliveries
Use of rail and water to be maximised. Local deliveries to be made by electric vehicles or cargo bikes with some sharing of 'last mile' deliveries to minimise journeys.
Schemes we support/oppose
We can always envisage more improvements than can be afforded, but we only support Improvement projects with a high benefit/cost (If only because it offers such poor return on investment, we are totally opposed to the HS2 venture).
We support TfL's proposed Bakerloo line extension into South London
We support TfL's proposed Metroisation of SE London rail services [see map on page 9]
