Because Loughborough Junction is on the edge of many constituencies and administrative boundaries it is often overlooked. We have developed the attached map to put the area at the centre of a Europe-wide transport network to make the point about how we are often overlooked when it comes to investment in transport and the public realm.
From the recent lack of a replacement bus while Coldharbour Lane is closed to the omission of a Loughborough Junction station on Phase 2 of the East London Line Extension and the withdrawal of direct services to Victoria from Denmark Hill; it is plain that we are being over looked when it comes to our transport needs. Add to this the lack of investment by the council and the fact that it does not enforce its own planning regulations and you have a spiral of decline that we want to see stopped.
When we tell people we live in Loughborough Junction we don’t want the response to be ‘Where?”, we want it to be “wow, lucky you”. This map has been produced to put Loughborough Junction on the map in a good way and remind politicians that we exist – especially when they are asking for our votes in the forthcoming national and local elections.
If you agree, show your support by;
1. forwarding this e-mail to as many people as you can who live, work or travel through Loughborough Junction
2. Print out the attached map an displaying it prominently
We’ve sent this to our politicians and their officers. We’ll let you know who replies and what they have to say.
