• Adequate Bike Storage for the Eric & Treby Estates
    Cycling is a low-cost way of getting around London. It is important to ensure that cycling is as accessible as possible. Many people also use cycling as a source of income, as delivery riders for the likes of Uber Eats and Deliveroo. For people who make a living from cycling, having access to secure bike storage means securing their livelihood. Cycling is also by far the most sustainable form of transport. Given the challenges we are facing with the climate, it is important that the barriers to sustainable changes are reduced as much as possible.

  • National Rail make a rail card for two or more people that say only lasts 6 months.
    Myself and my fiance currently buy the two together railcard, but it costs £30 a year, but we only use it when we buy our tickets at the train station and to show the conductors on the trains going to and coming back from visiting my fiance's family in the Northeast of England and we live in the Northwest. Neither of us can drive. There needs to be more choice as not everyone needs a railcard that lasts for a year especially if the people who use the card only use it once in an entire year.

  • Stop rip off train ticket machines
    Train travel is expensive, but did you know buying a ticket from a machine at the station could cost you more than twice the price compared to buying online? This is because the best value fares are either unavailable or hidden among several options on many machines. Consumer group Which? found in its research that there were several factors why a ticket machine may be more expensive. Some may not offer cheaper advance fares or split-ticketing, or make off-peak fares less visible. We need to strike while the iron is hot and demand they stamp out this rip-off way of doing business once and for all.

  • Thameslink to add rail and Overground signage outside Denmark Hill station
    Denmark Hill is the 39th most-visited out of the UK's 2,579 train stations. It serves two major hospitals, the new Salvation Army headquarters and is one of only two stations serving the 11,000 people who live in the Camberwell area. It's also a travel hub for people living in Herne Hill and East Dulwich. It has no signage on its busiest side. If visitors are unfamiliar with the station (as many hospital visitors are), it's impossible to find by sight. It's currently an anonymous brick building on a busy road. The newer, far quieter, side of the station has a prominent illuminated sign. Thameslink refuse to add any proper signage to the busier side on Champion Hill, despite this being to the obvious detriment of hospital visitors and others.

  • Cars must be roadworthy but so should roads.
    Cost of living and energy prices yet we need our cars to be able to get around and for work but pot holes which don’t get repaired but the uk keep charging us road tax and we must get a mot yearly but the uk with all the money they get can’t repair roads which is costing motorist more money. Either get roads repaired or us the public will start charging and invoicing the UK for all repairs and will take photos of pot holes on the road also we will charge a fee of the time it has taken to stop safely and get to the pot hole for the photo. We will also charge the uk for the uk safe roads.

  • Protect Oaklands Catholic School Children from Danger
    First Bus have cancelled the 7A school buses which took Oaklands Catholic School children home, from the bus stop inside the school grounds to Cosham. This has been done purely to save money and increase profits by First Bus, with absolutely no regard for the welfare and safety of school aged children. To give you an idea of how many children have been affected by this, First Bus used to supply a double decker and a single bus, which were full of school children. That is approximately 150 children who no longer have a safe way of getting home after school. 150 children are now forced to stand on the main Stakes Hill Road after school. Currently a temporary bus stop due to road works. This is very dangerous on a very busy road with heavy vehicle and pedestrian traffic from St Peters Catholic School and Crookhorn High School. The children are spilling onto the road, with teachers acting as wardens to push them back onto the footpath. We have all seen in the local news lately of an increase attempted child abductions of children on their way home from school. Sadly, also an increase of rape and violence, with the latest being the murder of a young woman in Portsmouth only weeks ago. I feel strongly, as does Mr Quinn the headteacher of Oaklands Catholic School, that the children are in danger. Mr Quinn urged parents in a bulletin email to write to our local MP Alan Mak to stop First Bus cancelling the 7A school buses. There have been no additional buses or double deckers put onto the main bus route by First Bus. This has forced parents, who are able, to take and collect their children from school by car. This has substantially increased the vehicle traffic (and pollution levels) in the already heavily congested area during peak times. The school cannot accommodate parking for the parents of the 1000 school children. Parents are now blocking the roads in the surrounding areas and parking illegally in front of the school and next to the temporary bus stop. The school is struggling to cope and resorted to calling the police to manage the illegal parking and dangerous traffic congestion. I fear it is only a matter of time before a child is injured by a car. The school should not have to deal with this added pressure and be left to manage this dangerous situation. It is winter now. Temperatures are freezing and it is dark by 4pm. The buses (number 7) on the main route are inundated with passenger's from Havant and South Downs College, Oaklands Catholic School, Crookhorn High School, and St Peters Junior School, along with regular shoppers and commuters. School children are having three buses passing them that are full to capacity and not accepting more passengers. This means that children are waiting outside in the dark and cold for up to an hour after they have finished school (4:30/5pm). The journey home can take up to another hour for children living in Portsmouth. Children are then expected to have dinner and do their homework. They are losing a lot of valuable time and this is having wider impacts on their education. The children are tired. They are now also late for school most days because they cannot get a space on a full-to-capacity First Bus to get to school on time.

  • Appoint a Regulator for Isle of Wight Ferries
    The Isle of Wight, a beloved destination for hundreds of thousands of visitors each year, is currently facing a significant challenge. The primary means of reaching our beautiful island is through the ferry services provided by Wightlink and Red Funnel. Unfortunately, these companies have gained reputations as cash cows for their shareholders, seemingly prioritizing profit over the provision of quality services to both Islanders and visitors. Countless horror stories circulate about passenger experiences on these ferries, and currently, there is no effective system in place to address these complaints, such as a Ferry Ombudsman or Regulator. Despite the urgency of these issues, governments have consistently overlooked them. It is time for our concerns to be recognized and addressed. Whether you are an Isle of Wight resident who relies on these ferry services, a frequent visitor, or even someone considering a future visit, your voice matters. We urge you to sign this petition to demonstrate to our MP, Bob Seely, and the government, that we’ve had enough. It’s time for urgent action in the form of a Ferry Regulator with real power. Your signature can make a difference in improving the travel experience for everyone who visits or lives on the Isle of Wight. Thank you for your support.

  • Double yellow lines and parking permits
    The Sidings is a popular spot for lecturers and students from Darlington College to park. The road is often full of vehicles which park on both sides of the roads, this makes it difficult for residents to enter and exit the area. It also makes it impossible for emergency vehicles to enter the area. This situation is dangerous and we are worried that this might cause accidents.

  • Halt the sale of all land purchased for HS2.
    Over a decade of cross party support, including members of the current Government Cabinet, have said that HS2 is vital to share prosperity across England and across the other countries that make Great Britain. There have been billions spent in reports, surveys, compulsory purchases and planning to make this levelling up a reality. At the Conservative Party Conference Rishi Sunak made the rare decision that united in anger both business leaders and environmentalists by cancelling HS2 North of Birmingham. This is a nationally important piece of infrastructure that will take decades to build and deliver centuries of gain. It should not be a decision made by one Prime Minister at a conference.

  • GWR - Keep Our Vital Train Services Running
    GWR's revised timetable from December 2023 for the Banbury to Oxford line removes two of the most vital commuting services for the intermediate stations Kings Sutton, Heyford and Tackley. These services are used every day by many workers and schoolchildren – not just from these villages but from the surrounding areas. Specifically, these are the morning service which arrives into Oxford at 0905, and the evening service which leaves Oxford at 1755. These trains are very well used, and are the services which are most closely aligned with an average person's working day, so this seems an extraordinary change to make. The re-timing of the services mean that (for Heyford) there are trains at 0741 and 0955 in the morning but no other trains stopping in between – meaning that there are no trains available at the key times many people need to travel to work. In the evening there are return services leaving Oxford at 1653 and 1859, but again nothing in between. This would result in a significantly longer working day for many, and if this change goes ahead, many of the affected people from these areas will inevitably end up driving instead (if they are able to), meaning additional cars on the road. These train services that fit with the working day are vital for people in living in Oxfordshire villages – help us continue being able to use public transport for our daily commutes, and avoid unnecessary car journeys. After signing the petition, please also consider lodging a complaint by contacting GWR Customer Services directly at [email protected] and let them know how you will be affected.

  • Free Tamar Tag
    With the abolition of HS2, the government have promised to reinvest in other areas of transport. The (much larger) Severn road bridge, as an essential transport arterie ,has been made free for motorists for years. Many people rely on the Tamar bridge to commute every day. It is also the route to Derriford Hospital in Plymouth, which serves Cornwall as well. The Bridge is self funding without any help from the Government. Is it not now time, that in line with other main traffic routes, the bridge was made free for local users? There is already a "Tamar Tag" system in .place that offers a discounted automatic drive through option which could be modified for local users. At it is, the toll is an unfair tax on the people of Devon and in particular Cornwall and it's time it was abolished.
