11. Cross River Tram

‘ We the undersigned support the development and implementation of the Cross River Tram as soon as possible. We believe that the Cross River Tram is essential for:

  • Linking regeneration area with the employment opportunities in the Central London area.
  • The relief of congestion on the Northern, Victoria & Piccadilly Lines.
  • Easing the significant overcrowding on buses which are currently the only means of public transport on certain sections of the route.

We call on the Mayor of London Boris Johnson to confirm his commitment to the Cross River Tram and to do everything in his power to ensure that it is delivered as soon as possible’

10. Clapham Common Westside intersection (Traffic safety)

‘On 20th June a young resident was killed while crossing Clapham Common West Side. The accident took place at the intersection with Canford Road, where his family and friends have left touching tributes.

The section of Clapham Common West Side between The Avenue and Battersea Rise is highly dangerous, not only for pedestrians crossing the road but also for those using the pavement where cars travelling at high speed often end up as evidenced by the frequently flattened bollards or sign posts.

Requests

  1. The zebra crossing at the intersection of the Avenue and Clapham Common West Side should be raised and preceded by speed humps;
  2. A raised pedestrian crossing with red lights should be installed at the junction of Canford Road and Clapham Common West Side. It should be preceded by markings on the floor displaying that the speed limit is 30mph, speed bumps or a speed camera;
  3. The existing crossing by the playground should also be raised and preceded by speed humps or a speed camera and 4 extra seconds should be added to the current crossing time to allow for families with small children and the elderly to cross;
  4. Cars often end up on the pavement opposite the common. All the way from the Avenue down to the junction at Grandison Road should be protected either by some form of fencing/barrier or by bollards placed 5 feet apart.’

8. Motor bikes in bus lanes

‘We, the undersigned, request that London Mayor, Boris Johnson, does not make a snap decision to allow motorbikes to use bus lanes, a move that could endanger the lives of cyclists and pedestrians, based on data that Transport for London said was ‘not considered sufficiently reliable to inform a decision on such an important issue.’

7. Extend the G1 bus route to Streatham  Vale

‘Petition to extend the G1 bus route to Streatham Vale

To Transport for London

We the undersigned wish to place on record our demand that when the contract and the route for the G1 bus route is reassessed this year by Transport for London, careful consideration is given to extending the route from its existing terminus at Hermitage Lane Norbury to Streatham Vale by extending the route to London Road Norbury, Stanford and Rowan Roads to provide a direct public transport link for local residents to Norbury, the new GP clinic and Primary care Centre at Baldry Gardens and to the wider route to South Streatham and Tooting including the existing direct route to St. George’s Hospital.’

6. TfL’s plans to change the S2 bus route

‘We the undersigned are opposed to Transport for London's plans to change the S2 bus route. Since the closure of Safeways in Roman Road, many residents in Bow have been forced to do their shopping at Tesco's at Bromley-by-Bow. The S2 has been providing a lifeline to that supermarket for hundreds of residents who do not have transport of their own. As the S2 both stops and starts (picks up passengers) directly outside the store, it makes it much easier for older residents and mums with young children to buy the shopping they need. Forcing passengers to carry their shopping through the dirty and dangerous underpass to a new stop at Bromley-by-Bow tube station will make life much harder for many residents in Bow. And so we call on Transport for London to retain the existing S2 route to Stratford or at least re-start the route outside Tesco's.’

5. London Underground’s intention to shut 40 ticket offices across the Tube network

‘We the undersigned reaffirm our opposition to London Underground’s intention to shut 40 ticket offices across the Tube network and drastically reduce the opening hours of hundreds more. We say this is NOT in our best interests as passengers and therefore petition London Underground and the Mayor of London to stop the closure of station ticket offices and to re-open those which have already been closed.’

4. Don’t run the S3 Bus via The Manor Drive

‘We, the undersigned strongly oppose the proposal from TfL to run the S3 Bus, via the Manor Drive. There could be serious risks to children and residents, as there is already congested traffic at the Parochial School and Doris Venner Centre. We ask the Mayor and GLA to review the route.’

3. Health and Safety related to the section of the A40 Western Avenue that covers Langdale Gardens, Perivale
