International Zero Emissions Bus Conference

I attended the Mayor of London's International Zero Emissions Bus Conference in partnership with the C40 Climate Leadership Group today (30 November) in City Hall.

The Mayor unveiled today London's world’s first double-decker hydrogen bus and has committed to phasing out purchasing new pure ‘dirty’ diesel buses from the capital.

At the Conference he mentioned that he would be looking to work with his counterparts around the world to start a race to the top in zero emission bus technology.

Transport Concerns meeting with the Mayor of London

I met with the Mayor of London Sadiq Khan and Deputy Mayor for Transport, Val Shawcross today to talk to them about my Transport concerns in Brent and Harrow.

I followed up issues that I raised with the Deputy Mayor of Transport when she came to meet with me and key stakeholders at my request in October.

In the meeting today I raised the following:

* the importance of making Harrow-on-the-Hill Station and Stanmore Station step free access.
* cleaner bus routes in Brent. 
* better transport for Outer London

The meeting was very productive and I will continue to lobby the Mayor of London for better transport infrastructure in Brent and Harrow.

Navin Shah calls for an urgent meeting with the Mayor of London

I have written to the Mayor of Londpn, Sadiq Khan asking for a meeting to make a strong case for step-free access at Harrow-on-the-Hill station.

There has been lots of active support from local resident groups and stakeholder bodies like Harrow Association of Disabled People and ‘Harrow Mencap and I have campaigned on this issue for at least 10 years. Step-free access for this area is vital for disabled & older people and families with children. Unfortunately our lobbying of the previous Mayor of London, Boris Johnson proved to be an utter waste of time.

A lot of infrastructure improvements are required to provide a fit for purpose public transport hub and is a priority for Harrow’s community is step-free access.

I’m grateful for the positive support I’ve received to date from Deputy Mayor Val Shawcross on this issue and I hope the Mayor of London will meet with me to discuss how we can deliver step free access to Harrow.’
