New transport plans announced by the Mayor of London and backed by Hounslow's Conservatives have sparked fierce disagreement among Labour rivals.
Boris Johnson claims his 10 year plan will increase the network's capacity by nearly 30 per cent through billions of pounds of investment.
Tory councillor Barbara Reid, Hounslow Council's lead member for environment, said: "We are pleased to see that the mayor is making a priority of building a better transport system for London and putting more focus on local transport solutions.
"The council is committed to improving local roads and promoting greener travel across the borough.
"We have already won awards for being London's most improved transport borough and for our commitment to promoting cycling and bus services.
"We are also planning to invest an extra £2million in keeping local roads and pavements safe and in good condition, and have secured £200m of PFI funding to invest in the borough's roads over the next 25 years."
However deputy Labour chief Ruth Cadbury criticised the plans, adding: "Many of the schemes that Boris has mentioned have actually been around for some time now.
"I think much of his ethos is geared towards speeding up traffic which is only going to make life worse for pedestrians and cyclists.
"I think Ken Livingstone had very clear ideas about what he wanted to do. With Boris it's not clear, and some of his schemes contradict each other.
"If you look at his ideas as a whole I think it seems car pro."
The Mayor's key promises include:
• A commitment to build Crossrail.
• A commitment to complete transformation of the tube to deliver improved reliability, faster journeys and new air conditioned trains on the District Line.
• To smooth traffic flows, making the best use of London's limited road space, by rephasing traffic lights and tackling the disruption caused by unplanned roadworks.
• To lead a revolution in cycling and walking in London.
• To improve further, the safety and security of the travelling public.
• To dramatically improve the experience of travelling in London eg. the roll out of the Oyster card to national rail.
• Commitment to oppose a third runway at Heathrow and investigate the viability of building an airport in the Thames Estuary.
