Transport is one of the key issues that councils control and that affects people’s lives. A small change to roads can significantly improve an area – or reduce it to gridlock.
Roadworks should not be about politics, yet Camden has put ideology ahead of practical and evidence-based problem-solving.
We will end roadworks chaos by forcing utility companies to coordinate works, take practical steps to promote cycling, put residents first when designing traffic schemes, keep traffic flowing, and make it easier to get about.
Local Conservative councillors will:
- End roadworks chaos through forcing utility companies to coordinate works by charging them for every day that roads are dug up.
- Teach every pupil in Camden schools to cycle, extend TfL Santander Cycles to the flatter parts of north-west Camden, and install cycle hangars where they’re needed.
- Scrap traffic schemes that do not have popular support: putting residents ahead of ideology.
- Get traffic moving by getting tough on parking breaches on the 300 most traffic-sensitive streets and tackling supermarket delivery lorries blocking traffic.
- Support flexible travel options by backing floating car clubs and making dockless bikes work.
