Wapping residents worried about the 100 bus route can meet our GLA member Unmesh Desai and local Labour councillor Denise Jones outside Wapping Overground at 10 am Monday 30th October to voice their concerns.
Cllr. Jones has organised this meeting with Unmesh as a direct result of the news of further cuts by Transport for London (TfL) to the 100 bus service, which is a lifeline to many in Wapping.
Previously on Love Wapping…
- TfL road closures unacceptable says Desai
- Everyone hacked off with 100 bus route changes (including the Mayor)
- TfL 100 bus route consultation results combined to fix final result
- TfL comes clean on 100 bus route changes
- A perfect storm – will Wapping be choked by new developments?
- Lets stop Centaur coaches using Wapping as a rat run
- Lib Dems Stephen O’Shea on case with TfL re road closures farce
Many thanks to Denise for organising this at such short notice and to Unmesh for coming to Wapping and listen to what people have to say.
So it would be good if as many people could turn up next Monday 30th October 10 am outside Wapping Station to express their views.
Wapping, as with many parts of London, is suffering increasing pressure from the amount of traffic on our roads.
It makes sense for Londoners to use public transport as much as possible and so very frustrating to find that the same public transport service is being cut in both reach and frequency.
Others have made the observation that because of the freeze on fares TfL is making cuts across its transport network, not just the 100 bus route in Wapping.
Wapping’s problem is that because of its location it is very dependent on the 100 bus and further cuts will cause major problems to everyone. We have repeatedly stated this fact so it is good to know that someone is coming to listen to us.
Thanks Unmesh and Denise!
