Air pollution & road safety concerns


Tooting Liberal Democrats have been surveying local streets recently. Many residents tell us they feel their streets are unsafe for them and their children, because of fast driving and worsening air pollution.

The Conservative Council and Labour Mayor are letting us down, by not taking action on these issues.

We know other boroughs in London, including Liberal Democrat Richmond, have been taking faster action with considerable success, and think that Wandsworth residents deserve better.

Local campaigner Jon Irwin says: "It's time for our Conservative Council and Labour Mayor to act on resident concerns. The Liberal Democrats will press for creative solutions, like better enforcement of 20mph speed limits, making local streets single entry only to reduce rat running, and trialling initiatives like School Streets, where roads outside schools are free of cars at pick up and drop off times.".

You can take the survey online: please tell us what you would like to change in your area, so that we can campaign for better streets and environment for all of us.
