Boris’s Transport cuts could cause pain to travelling public
Dear Ed, THE Mayor of London has announced a �5 billion cut to Transport for London’s budget. In the short term, it may be relatively easy to find savings. But long-term it could cause pain to the travelling public
THE Mayor of London has announced a �5 billion cut to Transport for London's budget.
This comes after he cancelled a number of public transport projects across London, commissioned a report which said bus services would have to be slashed to save money and refused to rule out imminent fare rises.
In the short term, it may be relatively easy to find savings.
But long-term it could cause pain to the travelling public-buses, station upgrades, improved pedestrian crossings, road maintenance and work to make stations safer and more accessible could all be at risk.
We all want to see an end waste and inefficiency.
