Elephant and Castle roundabout - Simon Hughes

Elephant and Castle roundabout

I am disappointed and confused by the response by Transport for London ( TfL) to the replies to their Elephant and Castle consultation.

The high approval figure TfL claim for their plans seem very odd, as many residents I spoke to earlier in the year were very negative about at least part of the plans.

It appears that TfL and Southwark Council are together determined to drive through their plans and quickly implement the new roundabout despite major concerns of local residents and business owners.

I am arranging to meet soon with local residents and groups to hear their reactions to this consultation, and I will robustly put all continuing concerns to TfL in the weeks ahead.

If you would like to speak to me about the issue please email me at simon@simonhughes.org.uk.

Alternatively, you can contact my constituency team between 1-4 Monday-Friday (excluding Wednesdays) on 0207 232 2557.
