A Birmingham wide response has been received from the Conservative Party, the Green Party and the Labour Party.
Luke Holland (Independent) has given us this response:
- Yes, I think its a good starting point to tackling transport issues in Birmingham. A lot more must be done though. BCR etc have all been good but we must progress more and they must be funded more.
- Of course! As a minimum! More money for cycling is essential, alongside walking and so on. I will fight for more money for BCR.
- Unsure. This is something I would want to look at in a lot more detail. Kings Heath High Street, for example, is one of Europe's busiest un-pedestrianised High Streets, having 3 sets of traffic lights too. It's something I will research and get back to you on.
- 20 is plenty and I support a complete city roll out of 20 mph. I also really do hope that it can be enforced.
- Completely support this. It's an issue that is very high on Kings Heath residents' agendas. Closing rat runs is something I will be campaigning for elected/un-elected. Kings Heath is ready for change, DIY Kings Heath Streets is a good starting point for this change.
- Yes definitely. Having cycle lanes dotted over the city is pointless, we must have an integrated cycle network.
