Trans­port plan will be dras­tic

Harefield Gazette - - YOUR SAY -

THE Mayor of Lon­don, Sadiq Khan, re­cently launched his con­sul­ta­tion on the Mayor’s Trans­port Strat­egy (MTS). The pub­lic­ity has amaz­ingly been min­i­mal for such an im­por­tant con­sul­ta­tion.

The MTS shows lit­tle ap­pre­ci­a­tion of how much us­ing mo­tor ve­hi­cles ben­e­fits busi­ness and pri­vate in­di­vid­u­als.

It threat­ens a range of dras­tic mea­sures, for in­stance:

Re­mov­ing scarce road and park­ing space In­creas­ing road user taxes and Ex­tend­ing the Con­ges­tion Charge across Greater Lon­don.

It fails to iden­tify con­struc­tive mea­sures that won’t hurt driv­ers.
