the undersigned request the establishment
of a direct link from Putney Bridge to
Hammersmith via Barnes, preferably by
an extension to the 22 bus route.
would be of benefit because:
is only one mile away but as there
is no direct transport link, people
are forced to use cars. This adds
to the traffic and parking congestion,
which is a major problem in South
Many children from West Putney attend
schools in Hammersmith including
St. Paul's Boys and Girls Schools,
Godolphin, Latymer Upper & Lower
Schools, Sacred Heart, Colet Court
and Bute House. At present many of
them are driven, as parents are understandably
reluctant to allow their children
to walk across the common alone,
especially in the winter months.
This again adds to traffic congestion.
Many commuters from West Putney would
benefit from access to the Piccadilly
Line Tube and a better link Heathrow
Residents of Putney would also benefit
from easier access to the shopping
facilities in Hammersmith.
The valuable new resource of the
Wildfowl and Wetland Centre has no
link with Putney so that all visitors
by tube have to approach from Hammersmith.
This lack of choice may force more
visitors into using their cars thus
causing more pollution and congestion.
