THE WANDSWORTH VOICE 

WE LET THE PEOPLE SPEAK



In its 2 short years of existence THE WANDSWORTH VOICE has always stated that it is on the side of all those who live in, work in or merely visit our (sometimes) charming riverside and park-laden borough.

Therefore we are committed to espouse, promote and publicise any and all initiatives which seek to enhance the quality of life and the quality of living in Wandsworth.

To this end, we wholeheartedly endorse the current initiatives and activities of Wandsworth Living Streets that are being undertaken in conjunction with the Borough’s managers to launch and/or consolidate the ’20mph Speed Limit in Residential Streets’.

A borough-wide consultation is now underway and we encourage our legions of local readers and followers to participate in the process. It couldn’t be easier to let your voices be heard.

And Wandsworth Living Streets own website is replete with details

And they have also produced a specific document in relation to the 20mph introduction, addressing such basic concerns as to ‘How will it actually be implemented and monitored?’

THE WANDSWORTH VOICE has always expressed its desire that all street users – pedestrians, cyclists, motor cyclists, car drivers, truck drivers and public service vehicle drivers – respond intelligently and selflessly to the needs of others. We know of course that this is not always the case – especially with our two-wheeled friends. 

Accordingly, when no less a person than Sir Bradley Wiggins takes to the media to express his views on the behaviour of some of his fellow cyclists then we salute this admirable Knight of the Road.

Our new motto is therefore …. ‘We let the people drive – but just a bit more slowly, please’.
