Livingstone’s mad Bromley traffic plans

I have seen the latest megalomaniac plans from Livingstone. According to the Times today Livingstone has a secret plan to extend congestion charge zone to Bromley.

The eagle eyed amongst you will have noticed a transport manifesto announced by the Mayor yesterday, yet there was no mention of it. This news tells us all we need to know about the current Mayor, arrogant, detached and lacking in honesty.”
If Livingstone cared about the transport needs of Bexley and Bromley residents he would have done something about suburban rail and bus services. He hasn’t. This is just another way for him to take more money from outer London to squander on his own pet political projects. (see Boris’ speech on The Cost of Livingstone)

It really is time w replaced this man with someone who has vowed to improve suburban transport services and protect our local green and open spaces.

  1. <>If Livingstone cared about the transport needs of Bexley and Bromley residents he would have done something about suburban rail and bus services.<>Boris’s only policy for transport in outer London is to improve bus links between Bromley and Richmond (not sure why). He has yet to tell us anything about suburban rail services or underground services in South East London.Ken has said he will take direct control of South London rail services. The idea of an elected official (however unaccountable) responsible for rail services has to be better than a French company making profits for their shareholders and the French government. What will you and Boris do to improve rail services from Bromley and connections to Ebbsfleet from South London?

  3. Jimmy,Not quite accurate. In his transport manifesto Boris made a number of commitments for South East London.He has also been here on a number of occasions and experienced local public transport first hand. More than can be said of Livingstone.

  5. Well I must admit that I have not fully read his transport manifesto as I cannot find it anywhere on the internet. Could you point me in the right direction?But having read many news articles regarding the press launch of the manifesto I can find nothing specific to South East London except reopening the tidal flow on the Blackwall tunnel, and replacing the wonderful bendy buses with routemasters and conductors at the bargain cost of £8m. Nothing which is inspiring to daily commuters, unless you happen to cycle (like you and Boris do). Not so much a manifesto for London as a manifesto for Boris and James.
