      Dear Teresa

      Thank you for taking the time to email me. The issue could be raised in several ways or via a couple of different panels. I Chair the Surface Pan and sit on the Safety and Sustainability Panel. I will raise this issue asap. You can write to any member of the board c/o TfL, and the staff always pass on these letters. Some of the meeting are open and these are listed on the TfL website.

      Best wishes

      Tanni

      With more and more people cycling, especially in the capital; accessibility is important

      Cycling/pedestrian access in London is very limited for crossing rivers, major roads, etc, and this would be a step towards making non-car transport in London better

      A cycle crossing should be provided from the O2 to Docklands to link the new housing to the new offices. Building a new road tunnel is a huge expense and will only make congestion and sustainable transport *worse*.
