Today the council announced the confirmation of major funding for street improvement and road safety improvements for Tooting. Between £2-5m have been earmarked for the scheme with consultations and feasibility studies expected late 2015 /early 2016. Works are expected to be completed by end of financial year – 2017/18.

The Tooting Lib Dem team are delighted with this news. The work and petitions that have been done in recent years calling for improvements, at times, seemed to have fallen on deaf ears. With thousands of signatures collected as part of the 2014 local election campaign, whilst they did not translate into votes, it seems like they have helped create real action.

One of the reasons for being part of the party is to make a practical difference. Seeing news like this just shows what Lib Dem campaigners are capable of, just imagine what we could achieve if we had locally elected Lib Dems!
