The Putney Road and Evesham Road schemes are clearly intended to create a new partial ring, taking traffic off the inner ring road and transferring the associated congestion and pollution into residential areas. New roads encourage drivers to make more journeys, so this short-term ‘solution’ actually worsens traffic-related problems in the long term. FCP would prefer to see better provision for alternative means of transport and supports both the ‘Putney Road Say No’ and the ‘End Of The Road’ campaigns. Please note Friends of Clarendon Park have joined the coalition as supporters rather than members for the time being.
