Motion text

That this House expresses its extreme concern at the appalling state of London's road system at present; notes that rush hours in the capital have become slow-moving misery for public and private vehicles alike, creating environmental pollution, deep frustration and personal stress; asks why the Government has taken no action to minimise the disruption in London through co-ordination of works being carried out on roads, tunnels and bridges; believes that privatisation and deregulation in London have exacerbated the problem; and calls upon the Government to take urgent action to control and co-ordinate road works in London, insisting wherever possible that 24-hour working be implemented, sensible alternative traffic control systems established and penalties imposed upon those undertakings which show little or no concern for the chaos they are inflicting upon Londoners.
