It took Ken a long time to jump aboard our bike plan
The Mayor has announced his investment in a new London cycling network and bike hire scheme. Liberal Democrats proposed this hire scheme in detail back in 2002, so I cannot help but wonder why it took so long for the Mayor to catch on? I hope that the May
The Mayor has announced his investment in a new London cycling network and bike hire scheme. Liberal Democrats proposed this hire scheme in detail back in 2002, so I cannot help but wonder why it took so long for the Mayor to catch on?
I hope that the Mayor is able to manage this scheme better than his segregated cycle tracks on the A4 in West London. If you were to visit the Mayor's cycling network there, you would find tracks that are painted red on one side of the road and green on the other, as well as uneven surfaces and bollards that obstruct the paths.
Furthermore, there is simply not enough space for cycle parking at the moment. The Mayor has failed to provide a solution for this existing problem. Ken needs to address the basics before trying to grab headlines. I fear that like previous proposals, this scheme shall be abandoned by the roadside due to poor planning.
The Mayor needs to be working to improve London's green transport, not his own image.
