    Public Transport in Merton

    Merton Council is asking local residents to voice their opinion on how the borough’s public transport can be improved at a consultation meeting with councillors and public transport providers on 25 June. The public meeting, led by the sustainable communities scrutiny panel councillors will highlight issues, concerns and suggestions regarding public transport in Merton by giving residents an opportunity to speak directly with transport providers. Transport for London will be taking part in the meeting with a presentation on the upgrade of the Northern Line and there will also be presentations from Travelwatch and a dedicated question and answer session at the end of the meeting. Following the meeting the Sustainable Communities Scrutiny Panel will make recommendations for improvement to the council’s cabinet and relevant partners to ensure that the issues raised are addressed. Councillor David Dean will chair the meeting in his position as chair of the Sustainable Communities Overview and Scrutiny Panel. He commented: “The transport system in Merton is crucial for economic and social welfare. Many residents have concerns about the current state of the infrastructure and we would like them to meet with the stakeholders to explain how transport can be improved. Residents pay a lot of money in tax and fares and they would like solutions to overcrowding amongst other concerns.” The meeting will be held on 25 June 2009 in the council chamber at the civic centre in Morden at 7:30pm. Refreshments will be available from 7pm.
