Abigail Lock says "Tram it!"

January 22, 2008 3:19 PM

Tom Brake MP joined Cllr Abigail Lock, Liberal Democrat London Assembly Spokesperson for Sutton & Croydon at Sutton Station on the 11th January to launch her Tram It! Campaign which aims to extend tram services to Sutton.

Commenting Abigail said: "It is high time that the pressure on our roads was eased and tram services extended to our area."

She continued: "Extending the tram network would not only complement existing public transport and provide an environmentally-friendly alternative to travelling by car, but also give a boost to the local economy as has been seen elsewhere."

Speaking at the campaign launch Mr Brake said: "Persuading people to abandon their cars in favour of greener forms of travel must be part of Britain's long-term Transport strategy. I am thrilled to back Abigail's campaign."

Abigail added, "Running the tram to Sutton would show there is an alternative to Mr Livingstone's inner-city focused transport policy. The suburbs need better public transport too."

    If you are a resident of the Carshalton and Wallington constituency and are writing to discuss any issue that Parliament or government is responsible for, you must provide your home address as MPs are generally only permitted to act on behalf of constituents.

    If you are not a constituent, you do not need to provide your address, but the matters we can deal with are more limited and you may wish to contact your local MP in the first instance.
