Sustainable Transport

Improving public transport and opportunities for walking and cycling

WHAT WE'VE DONE

WHAT WE'LL DO

  • All active travel measures should be approached strategically, collaboratively, and using trials and evidence.
  • Develop strategic cycle routes.
  • Limit heavy ‘through traffic’ on residential roads.
  • Commission plans to make local stations fully accessible - rail companies tell us having “shovel ready” plans is critical when funding becomes available.
  • Much will depend on whether the Mayor of London extends the ULEZ to Merton – if he does our focus will be on fairness, giving people the time and support to switch to more environmentally friendly vehicles.
  • We’ll measure the effectiveness of every initiative.
