Ward 13 is the quintessential walkable community. We must continue to develop our neighbourhoods, ensuring services are only steps away.
As we move forward in building this great city of ours, it is essential that planners and leaders ensure that transportation is inclusionary. We need roads, of course, but walkable neighbourhoods and safe cycleways are essential to allow current and future Londoners an array of transportation options.
London is working towards a transit vision for 2030, but in the meantime, we must focus on short- and medium-term improvements to infrastructure and service. All-season bus shelters with digital readouts and multi-day passes can all be built and implemented. A system preferred is desired over system that is forced.
Walking and cycling infrastructure have come a long way over the past decade and we need to continue that good work. As we continue to reimagine and expand these networks, we also need to stay focussed on upkeep and maintenance.
