Cllr. Anna Birley talks sustainable transport in Council debate

During a themed debate at Lambeth Council Town Hall Anna spoke at length about how the Council can build a Lambeth borough that is sustainable, green and one that has an effective transport system. 

Anna explained that she had used Twitter to gauge public opinion on transport, and noted that the key issue was safety, with driver injuries falling as cyclist injuries rose, while clean air was also a problem. She also raised the fact that children and young people needed to be persuaded to use sustainable transport, and that policies such as the 20mph speed limit and schools encouraging walking and cycling could help to achieve this. Anna also commented that while councils had made achievements in changing people’s methods of transport, she expressed the need for a grass roots approach, as had been seen in Tulse Hill.
