Blackfriars: Wake Up Boris
Nothing to do with Brighton or Hove, except there’s a First Capital Connect train service which links Brighton Bedford, and goes right through the middle of London via Blackfriars. And at Blackfriars there’s a new station straddling the Thames, linking the north bank to the south bank by Tate Modern. This is a Good Thing, unlike the plans for revising the road traffic junctions at the new station. This has prompted the London Cycling Campaign to put forward an alternative scheme to make Blackfriars a better place not just for people on bikes but also for people on foot. Is Boris Johnson listening?
