Mayor Boris Johnson reveals plans for outer London ahead of election

First published in News

Boris Johnson has unveiled his nine point plan for greater London as the Mayoral election heats up.

Mr Johnson outlined his determination to end the waste and mismanagement to free up money to pay for a strong plan for London’s future.

He said: “I am determined to put the scarce resources of London’s taxpayers where it makes the most difference, to our critical objective of boosting jobs and growth.

“It is by making London ever safer and better to live in that we will bring investment to our city.

Yesterday he made nine pledges:

1. Cutting waste at City Hall – freeing up £3.5 billion for services
2. Putting £445 back in your pocket by freezing the Mayoral share of council tax
3. Creating 200,000 new jobs over the next four years
4. Making our streets and homes safer with 1,000 more police on the beat
5. Restoring 300 acres of green space and planting 20,000 street trees
6. Investing £221 million to transform local high streets, supporting small businesses
7. Ensuring a true Olympic legacy – 11,000 new homes and 10,000 new jobs
8. Reducing Tube delays 30% by 2015. Building Crossrail and orbital rail to link our suburbs. Extending the Bike Hire scheme
9. Securing a better deal for London from No 10

Plans to end waste but spends £1,400,000 for each of eight buses for London against the normal price of £190,000. Goes nicely with the LibDems' £600,000 St. Nicholas Way bus stop except the new buses are unlikely to ever run in Sutton, serving Hackney at present.
