For too long Streatham has been overlooked when it comes to big infrastructure projects. That’s why we are looking to the future and using our collective strength get the area back on track.
The Crossrail 2 Consultation closed today and Lambeth’s Cabinet Member for Jobs & Growth, Councillor Jack Hopkins called on TfL to bring the line through Streatham. You can read his submission here.
The submission highlighted the transformative impact a new station would have on alleviating congestion, reducing travelling times and regenerating the area by creating new jobs, growth and housing.
Together with local organisations like Streatham Action (whose ‘Help bring Crossrail 2 to Streatham’ petition can be signed here)and Streatham BID, Lambeth Labour has been making the case for better transport links.
It builds on the ‘Back on Track’ campaign launched last year, which identified ten key demands. As the new year begins, Cllr Hopkins and Streatham councillors will be meeting with TfL to press the case for Crossrail, as well as the new cycle lanes, safer junctions and cleaner buses that residents want to see.
