Pints & Politics: Shift Forward
Wed, 22 March 2017, 5:30 PM – 8:00 PM EDT
Two years after the kickoff of the Shift London initiative rapid transit is back in the news and it's time for Londoners to pay close attention as we get near the finish line on the proposal.
The Shift team has put forward a detailed plan to move forward. Any infrastructure project of this magnitude inevitably raises concerns, and we'd like to take the opportunity to share those, and clear up any misinformation that might be floating around.
Shift London is a key city building initiative and it's tightly tied in with The London Plan, Back to the River, LondON Bikes, Dundas Place and other plans. What are the pros and cons of the various routes? What's the impact to traffic? Business? Heritage? How do we move forward from here?
Join us at the next Pints with our host Amanda Stratton of the London Transit Riders Alliance (formerly LTC Bus People).
As usual, doors open at 5:30pm and we kick things off at 6:00pm. We'll chat for 60-90 minutes using the normal rules: everybody gets to speak but only for two minutes and the mic only comes back around after everyone has had an opportunity to speak.
See you there!
