The Future of Transport in Finchley


 The Future of Transport in Finchley 

Thursday 21st March 2013 at 7-30pm

Avenue House, 17 East End Road, N3 3QE

Join us for a Future Of Transport In Finchley discussion evening at Avenue House. We have invited a panel of experts to field your questions and stimulate a lively debate on all aspects of local travel. The motor car is often regarded as an indispensable accoutrement of modern living. But is it so absolutely necessary? And what is the true cost? We now have 150,000 cars in the borough, more than 10 times the number we had 50 years ago. Our once practically empty roads are now jam packed and fume filled, pollution is at dangerously high levels and priority has been given to motor traffic at all costs. As roads have expanded, greenery has disappeared.

But what about more sustainable forms of transport? Are we here in Finchley doing enough? Have we joined the Mayors Cycling Revolution? Could we be walking more? What about new technology like electric cars and hydrogen fuel cells? Are we planning a public transport infrastructure for future generations? Is the Council doing enough for sustainable future transport? If you have any views or questions, please come along for what promises to be an interesting and stimulating discussion evening. Please submit questions in writing by March 15th.
