This draft consultation paper suggests positive practical solutions to the traffic problem in London. The relation between land use and transport, the interaction between all modes of travel, safety, and the quality of life of people living or working in the city are all taken into account. The objectives of the strategy are to: a) increase accessibility for all; b) improve the environment; c) maximise transport's contribution to London's economy; d) improve transport's safety, security, and efficiency; e) increase equality and equity; and f) increase democratic involvement in London's transport. The strategy is based on improving public transport and facilities for pedestrians and cyclists, while restraining traffic at the busiest times in the busiest places, coupled with land use policies which enhance accessibility while reducing the need for unnecessary travel. Attention is focused particularly on catering for the elderly, the infirm, and children. Sections are provided on methods to: a) improve bus and rail transport, b) control car use; c) restrict freight and air traffic; d) improve access for pedestrians, cyclists, and disabled people; and e) improve administration.
