In their unwavering quest to promote their umbrella company Brick by Brick and their unlimited and bottomless greed, Labour run Croydon Council have railroaded through a large housing development in a historical area of the borough, which by their own admission has 'poor to moderate access to local transport links'. Currently, morning commuters have to wait for up to three buses to pass before being allowed to board due to the large volume of students traveling to Virgo Fidelis and St Joseph's Academy. A distance of less than one mile to these two schools where the buses then empty can take up to 30 minutes during peak times. Clearly the infrastructure is creaking without the addition of all of the new housing units 'proposed' by Croydon Council. Why is it that full fare paying commuters are being penalised at the expense of students and their heavily subsidised travelcards? How do Councils justify their ever increasing Council taxes, and public transport fares, without doing anything to remedy existing transport problems? When questioned, the Council go as silent as the grave, Ward Councillors suddenly more invisible than normal, content to wallow in the trough of public funding without addressing the current serious problems within the borough.
