Letter from Chris published in local paper

Dear Editor

The axing of the Crystal Palace Tramlink extension shows just how empty the promises are that Boris Johnson made during the mayoral elections. He called for ‘new ideas and fresh thinking’ about transport in London. He also pledged to introduce measures to tackle congestion and improve public transport in outer London. The travelling public in Croydon have simply been duped by promises that should never have been made, which Steve O’Connell, Croydon’s Tory GLA member, at least admitted.

Croydon residents need the Mayor to ‘make our transport system better to improve our quality of life’(another mayoral aspiration shelved). In Croydon traffic congestion is making rush hour journeys by public transport in the borough longer, forcing people to abandon buses for cars and increase congestion. Has the Mayor given up on Croydon and why weren’t we told earlier?
