As you know, colleagues and I have been working with a group of residents in Southampton Way regarding the poor transport links in the area. I thought it would be useful to pass on one resident's comments on your answer to my question number 60/2012 and ask for your further comments and plans to improve travel options specifically in the Southampton Way area:
'The response to question 60/2012 is clearly an attempt to fob Val off with information which is irrelevant. Although Val's question referred to Southampton Way, the Mayor lists the following improvements in 'Peckham':
12 converted to double deck at increased frequencies - this fails to acknowledge a significant cut in capacity (between 10% and 30% at all times except late evening and weekend nights)! Note also that the 12 serves neither Southampton Way nor North Peckham
63 increased evening and Sunday frequencies in November 2009 - all well and good, but this does nothing whatsoever to address the ongoing overcrowding in the rush hours, which has previously been drawn to the Mayor's attention! 63 doesn't serve Southampton Way either.
436 converted to double deck at increased frequencies - as with the 12, the Mayor fails to acknowledge that capacity was cut! Note also that the 436 serves neither Southampton Way nor North Peckham
P13 rerouted via Queens Road - of absolutely no help nor relevance to Southampton Way or North Peckham
N63 increased on weekend nights in Nov 2009 - all well and good, but that isn't going to tackle the rush hour crowding problem. N63 doesn't serve Southampton Way
N89 increased on weekend nights in Sept 2010 - all well and good, but doesn't help with the rush hour capacity problems, and doesn't serve Southampton Way or North Peckham!'
