High Court rules TfL's 'Streetspace' plan unlawful

Keith Prince AM, GLA Conservative Transport Spokesman, commented: "After today's High Court ruling, Sadiq Khan and Transport for London must rethink London's ill-considered Streetspace scheme.

"By failing to consult Londoners on major changes to our city's roads, TfL's efforts to get London moving have backfired disastrously. These rushed anti-car measures have caused congestion, delayed emergency service vehicles, and hurt London's struggling black cabs. Shamefully, elderly and disabled Londoners' interests were completely ignored.

"The lesson from this expensive, chaotic experiment on our streets is clear – the Mayor and TfL must listen to Londoners. Without proper consultations, Londoner's voices will not be heard, and damaging measures can be rushed through to our city's detriment. The Mayor must learn this lesson and drop TfL's appeal, which would only waste more public money."
