We share Streatham residents' concerns about the area’s transport links - and must now come together, make our voices heard and secure a better deal.
Why is Streatham missing out when it comes to better rail links both into and out of our area? What are your priorities for improving buses, roads and cycling? How do you think we can get Streatham better connected so we can help create jobs and boost the local economy?
Our popular town centre has been affected by the recent refurbishment of London Bridge station with a number of services into and out of our stations changed or cancelled, and the disruption set to last until at least 2016. This follows Streatham missing out on a series of transport proposals – including the Bakerloo line extension; Crossrail 2; the Croydon Tramlink and the Cross River Tram.
With the General Election this year, and the London Mayoral elections the year after, we need to be clear on what Streatham needs. There will never be a better time to be united in our calls to the politicians with their hands on the purse strings.
