GLA Elections - Candidate Conversation and Virtual Cycle Ride with Louise Calland, Conservative Party

 As part of the #ClimateSafeStreets campaign on 28 April we met with Conservative candidate for Merton and Wandsworth to discuss walking and cycling and share a brief virtual cycle ride along CS7 from Balham to Colliers Wood to show her how safe, protected cycle lanes make both walking and cycling safer and more appealing. 

Afterwards we asked her views on massively extending the cycling network to a high standard, the role of CS7 as protected and dedicated in this network, giving every Londoner access to dockless e-bikes and electric car clubs and creating a fairer, simpler “smart road user charging” system. Watch the video to see what she had to say.
