Have your say on London buses and local transport

The views of Go Earlsfield readers are being sought through two transport consultations.

Bus survey

The London Assembly wants to hear from bus users about their experiences of using buses now, and what they think could be done in future. They ask: "How do you feel about overcrowding on your morning commute? Have you experienced changes to your bus service? What would improve your journey? How do you think bus services should be run in future?"

Make sure your experiences of the 44, 77, 270 and G1 are represented by filling in the short survey.

Wandsworth Council is asking residents for feedback on their transport plans. The plans, which cover streets, cycling, rail, tube, buses, riverboat, walking and motorists, can be found at the council's Travel Choices web page. Earlsfield gets two mentions, one about the council supporting station improvements, and one about improving road layouts at "Earlsfield town centre". Is this enough? Are you happy with the council's plans or are there other changes you'd like to see?

Russell King, Wandsworth Council's transport spokesman, said:

"It could be a local change you're after like more cycle parking or a major upgrade like a new rail connection. We will look at every suggestion to see whether it's something we can take forward with you.

"The progress we've made in bringing the Northern Line extension to Battersea shows what can be achieved when a council works with the local community. We want to repeat that success in other parts of the borough."

Let the council know by emailing strongerwandsworth@wandsworth.gov.uk.
