Taxi trade overlooked, as Tenison Way Set to be transformed in £4bn roads overhaul: ...by Glen Alutto

Tenison Way, no longer to be a round about.


The IMAX roundabout at Waterloo is to be redeveloped, intending to create a better interchange facility at Waterloo station. The whole reasoning and expense behind the project, is to improved facilities for cyclists.

Boris Johnson, said: “Smarter design of our roads and public spaces, exemplified by our radical plans for Elephant & Castle, will play a key role in ensuring that London remains the best big city to live, work and invest.

“We’ve been hard at work putting the bold and imaginative blueprint of the Road’s Task Force into practice and we’re now seeing the fruits of that labour at key locations across the capital.”

The schemes will be delivered by TfL in partnership with London’s boroughs, developers and businesses.

Councillor Catherine West, Chair of London Councils’ Transport and Environment Committee, said: “These schemes, developed in partnership with boroughs, developers, businesses, and Transport for London through the Mayor’s Roads Task Force, should offer real benefits for local communities and road users.

“They will better address the needs of all road users, including pedestrians, cyclists and motorists, and have a positive impact on the quality of life for residents. We look forward to continuing our work with the Mayor’s Roads Task Force to ensure these major projects are a success for Londoners.”

Who and what is this Roads Task Force I hear you say?

As there are 26k of us we must have a strong influence on it surely?

Below is a list of it's members.

More pollution resulting in more preventable deaths.
More traffic resulting in more expensive cab rides to and from Waterloo.

Just so cyclists can jump another set of lights.

This Mayor is raving mad and needs removing.

Not forgetting the 2 years or so of road works lane closures and congestion around the roundabout while the 4 man contracted team work a 6 hour day getting it all done in between tea and lunch breaks.
