Labour in Southwark and across London has broken its promises on transport. The Labour Mayor has failed to deliver the Bakerloo Line extension, has shelved plans for the Rotherhithe to Canary Wharf bridge and cut the RV1 bus. And Labour-run Southwark Council has failed to deliver local transport infrastructure such as cycle hangers and electric vehicle charging points.
We will promote clean, green transport. Labour has broken its promises on the Bakerloo Line extension and the Rotherhithe to Canary Wharf footbridge. The Liberal Democrats will deliver the improvements that our community needs.
- Expand the Santander cycle hire scheme. We will fund the installation of 100 more docking stations throughout the borough and provide free membership for Southwark residents.
- A tram for Southwark. We will put Southwark’s weight behind plans for a tram to connect the borough while we await the stalled Bakerloo line project.
- Deliver 25km of new cycle lanes. We will make our roads safer by providing 25km of new cycle lanes across Southwark by 2025.
- Invest in electric vehicle charging points. We will ensure that installation of EV charging points keeps up with demand, and guarantee an EV charging point within 200 metres of every home.
