• Ban Bus Gates and Bus Lanes
    Bus gates and lanes make travel to cities overly complicated and disproportionately disadvantage people from outwith the local area. Bus gates are overly complicated and are like traps to catch out the general public who accidentally end up in the wrong lane. In any other instance a safe manoeuvre or detour would correct a navigational error but with bus gates and bus lane cameras any confusion of lane choice becomes a penalty to people who are trying to obey the rules as often there is no way to prevent entering a zone once in a wrong lane on a one way system. Access to city roads should be equal for all vehicles and not restrict the general public from travel. The general public shoud not be subjected to fines or any penalty for trying to navigate round a town in order to buy goods or services to provide for their families.

  • NORTHERN RAIL COMMIT NOW TO PAY STAFF A REAL LIVING WAGE
    The real Living Wage, which has cross party support, is an hourly rate which is set independently and updated every year. It is calculated according to the real costs of living in the UK and employers choose to pay the Living Wage on a voluntary basis. There are currently over 5,000 accredited employers. The Living Wage Charter commitment sees all employees of a company, regardless of whether they are direct employees or third-party contracted staff; receive a minimum hourly wage of £9.00 in the UK. Both these rates are significantly higher than the statutory minimum for over 25's of £8.21 per hour or £7.70 for under 25's introduced in April 2019. Give them the dignity and respect of a real Living Wage now.

  • BA must respect musicians and replace N'Faly Kouyaté's damaged Kora
    Since posting on social media about his experience, it has become clear that he is not the first musician to encounter muddled and conflicting implementation of policies when boarding BA flights with expensive, delicate and sometimes rare instruments. We call for BA to clarify their policies and publish the so called 'recent change in the law' regarding the transportation of musical instruments in the cabin quoted by their ground staff. We also urge BA to ensure all staff are properly trained to understand the needs of international musicians travelling with specialist instruments and baggage handling crews are taught safe handling procedures. Unless the safety of their instruments is guaranteed, musicians will increasingly avoid using BA flights for international work.

  • Promote Cycling and build proper bicycle lanes
    Cycling might not be the most popular means of transport in rainy Scotland but the lack of proper bicycle lanes does not help at all. Introducing The Bothy, a new cycling hub for Inverclyde to shelter from the rain was a fantastic start but the only existing bicycle lanes that are safe, are along the Esplanades in Greenock, Gourock and the Battery Park. The bicycle lane from the Esplanade to the Waterfront complex (Cinema, Inverclyde Leisure,Beacon) along Container Way is either non-existent or in very poor condition and also shared with walkers without clear marking. There are no cycling lanes around the town centres (Gourock/Greenock) at all and hardly any provisions to park your bike not even at the fitness centres. The Waterfront Leisure complex has bicycle stands but they are exposed to the rain. The Greenock Sport Centre has no bicycle stands at all. Because of the lack of bicycle lanes I do cycle on the road a lot but it has become more and more dangerous over the years and is unsuitable for younger children. Scotland has some of the worst obesity and public health problems in Europe so the one thing local governments should encourage is for people to get out of their cars and either walk or cycle. There are plenty of campaigns on junk food pricing policies and healthy eating but the provisions to encourage and help people to get out of their cars and on their bikes are very poor. Throughout Northern Europe (Scandinavia, Holland, Germany) cycling has become a major means of transport and governments have responded by providing proper and save bicycle lanes.

  • Air conditioning on the Bakerloo Line
    For the comfort of passengers, who are after all paying the same fares as passengers travelling on other tube lines. There are people with health problems, elderly people, children etc, who are particularly vulnerable.

  • Give Bristolians the Bike Infrastructure They Deserve
    Bristol has one of the highest rates or bike usage in the UK, in fact 57,000 walk or cycle to work, the highest in England & Wales. Over a quarter of Bristolians ride a bike at least once a week, let's get those numbers up by improving safety and consideration on the roads. We must ensure there is less traffic wars between cars and bikes by, when it is possible, providing dedicated bike lanes. 80% of Bristolians feel traffic congestion is a major problem, an increased use of bikes would have an immediate effect on car usage, just removing 10% of cars at peak time has a huge effect on traffic flow. In order to meet the Net Zero target for 2030 we should really be pushing to encurage bike uptake. Bicycles are safe, clean, green, convenient and fun, not to mention all the health and social economic benefits, so let's build a city than Bristolians want and so rightly deserve. Thank you, Bristol Citizens

  • Make the Hungerford-Grafton A338 safer
    There has just been yet another (fatal) accident at a junction on this stretch of road (the Sanham Green turning). This road, which many drivers and bikers treat as a 'racetrack' owing to its elevated position and the illusion of it offering a 'clear stretch' with no settlements, is in fact often narrow, winding, with hidden dips, and MANY concealed driveways and junctions, which have been the site of numerous accidents over the years. The Sanham Green junction, and the Bedwyn-Shalbourne and Bedwyn-Oxenwood crossing points, are notoriously difficult junctions which even locals find unsettling due to the speed of traffic approaching on the main road (often in excess of 60mph).

  • Safety on the Lymington Road Hampshire border
    This is an accident/fatality waiting to happen. The speed limit is 40mph which is often exceeded. Several times cars have broken through the fenced border of Chewton Glenn. The pathway is extremely narrow at the bend approaching Hobourne site. There is no other way to walk across this boundary from Barton on Sea to Highcliffe. This is now a particular problem as Hobourne is/has closed off the cliff walk access to members of the public.
