Despite huge government cuts I am startled by the amount of tax payer cash the GLA is pouring into cycle lanes. Whilst I appreciate this isn't always the case, I find many cyclists to be rude and inconsiderate, never stop at red lights and also never slow down for crossing pedestrians.
As London’s population grows, investment in transport is vital to maintain services and increase capacity.
Projects to keep London moving, such as the upgrade of the tube network and delivery of Crossrail, are underway. These will benefit commuters and the organisations we work for, not to mention create thousands of jobs. But can major projects mean major disruption?

Transnet envisages a network, every block ( a block is approximately 500 x 500 sq Yard or Meter area) of of the City interconnected, through vehicles called Capsules, each capable of carrying just two people, at speeds of 160 miles (250 Kilometers) per hour, each block provided at the ends of its
The London survey shows that over two thirds of Londoners feel their local roads are busy and congested and a similar number have not seen any improvements in congestion. Despite this less than a third of Londoners feel they are disturbed by noise from transport.
In a city growing as fast as London noise is always going to be an issue. The new buses and UberX (prius) are helping to reduce noise pollution but unfortunately it's not enough.
The new gyratory at The Archway is causing unprecedented build-up in traffic queues northbound up Holloway Road. Yesterday lunchtime, a normal day; traffic was at a stand-still from Archway down Holloway Road to past the junction with Mercers Road - I took photos and can send these.
A new garden for London - good idea. A new bridge for London - also good.
A private garden bridge for London - bad idea.
It might be feasible to combine toaster with hair-dryer, but it doesn't mean it's a good idea.
It is ridiculous that living in Zone 3 of South London is so poorly serviced and TFL just simple doesn't care about the thousands of people who live down this way who too might like to enjoy convenient travel to the rest of the city.
For a city that is one of the top ten tourist attractions in the world, you do a very poor job of accommodating tourists, the disabled and the elderly. There needs to be more lifts installed. In most tube and train stations, the only way to get around is by stairs.
There is much talk of the necessity to use electric vehicles in Large towns and cities - yet how can I, living in a terraced house arrange for a charging point close enough to be useful.
More and more buildings to live in and the infrastructure stays the same even at 5 pm you have to stand in the tube
Why not a walking/ cycling bridge over the Thames no pollution much healthier
SOUTH LONDON AREA OF SUTTON, CHEAM, BANSTEAD, EPSOM ETC HAS VERY BAD TRANSPORT LINKS. WE NEED BETTER TRANSPORT SYSTEM SO THAT WE CAN KEEP THE CARS OFF THE ROADS. OUR YOUNGSTERS AND TEENS NEED TO BE DROPPED OFF AND PICKED UP ALL THE TIME ESPECIALLY AT WEEKENDS.
What impact do you think planned new River Thames crossings will have on East London? Might they bring positive effects?
We've got half a dozen airports called "London", yet we go on like Heathrow has to be some great hub of the world. This keeps noise and pollution near Heathrow high, while relentless expansion destroys communities. All the while the skies over London are full of planes.
The LLDC intends to demolish the pedestrian only bridge on Monier Road, Fish Island. Local residents oppose this idea because we want to keep the area green and noise, pollution and traffic free! Please see our petition!
I am a great supporter of "Boris'" vision of a much much much greener London. I think Joanna Lumley's idea of the Garden Bridge is magnificent (though I hope she doesn't escape to the trees as she suggests!
I'd like to get your experience of using the roads on the Cycle Superhighway routes.
The first completed one runs past The Oval.
Part of the promise by Boris was that traffic would run as freely once completed as it did before the lanes were reduced from two to one.
Events in the last year put a spotlight on London's airports, trains and the Underground. If money were no object what would you build to make it easier to get in to and around London?
Great idea, But when will it close to make way for Cycle lanes.
Seriously though, Would it be sensible to include cycle lines as well?
