Mayor cracks down on disruptive roadworks

Boris Johnson has launched a new front in his battle against disruptive roadworks - a dedicated website for reporting problem sites.

Making the announcement at Transport for London's (TfL) traffic nerve centre, Boris Johnson urged Londoners to name and shame the companies whose sites are unattended, cluttered or causing unnecessary delays. Londoners can use the new reporting system to tell TfL which sites need attention so they can take action with the relevant organisations to keep the capital moving.

The Mayor and TfL are setting out a new roadworks pledge outlining what standards Londoners should expect from roadworks sites and calling on borough highway authorities to do the same hold those who dig up roads on their streets fully to account.

Share your views on London

By Boris Johnson

A pretty great Londoner (William Shakespeare) once asked: 'What is the city but the people?' before answering: 'The people are the city'. London is the best big city in the world largely because of the people who live in it - you. That is why we want to know how you would take it forward.

As I hope you can tell from this questionnaire we are very proud of what we have achieved over the last three of years. For instance, we froze the Mayor’s share of council tax making taxpayers’ money go further than before. And we have ramped up the fight against crime which is now down by 9% making London the safest it has been for a decade.

£12 for 2012 donor meeting

Having seen what Boris has achieved so far, I decided to show my backing by making a donation to the BackBoris2012 re-election campaign. I was fortunate to be picked out of a hat amongst a few other people to meet him. I found Boris a very friendly and down to earth man who is passionate about London, its people and businesses.

He explained what he is doing to get normality to the areas affected by the riots and improve London’s image on the international scene. He answered questions on various topics including putting more police on the streets, cutting crime, making the Olympics a success and his lane rental scheme for cutting congestion. Having met Boris, I am now even a stronger supporter of him and recommend everyone to support and vote for him.

Boris RE:NEWs London homes

As part of Boris’s pledge to ease Londoners’ financial burdens and improve the quality of life in the capital, the Mayor unveiled his RE:NEW energy efficient programme which will cut fuel bills for tens of thousands of Londoners.

Through RE:NEW, a free energy efficiency makeover will be given to 55,000 homes across the capital. During May 2012, parts of Barking and Dagenham, Hackney, Lewisham and Waltham Forest, will be retrofitted so that Londoners can save £100s on their annual fuel and energy bills.
