The Royal Borough of Greenwich has launched a consultation with residents on its vision for transport in the borough and investment plan for the next three years.
The Local Implementation Plan for Transport sets out the Council's ambitious plans for making the borough greener, healthier and more connected - with a particular focus on how walking, cycling and public transport can be improved.
Tackling poor air quality and making streets safer for walking and cycling are key objectives for the Council, and it has already been trialling schemes such as Car Free Day and School Streets across the borough. The Local Implementation Plan builds on the success of this existing work and includes proposals to improve bus priority, install better pedestrian crossings and create safer cycling routes.
'Help us shape our plans'
Cllr Denise Scott-McDonald, Cabinet Member for Transport, said "Transport is a vital part of everyday life for everyone. We want to make sure that the journeys residents make in Royal Greenwich are safer, cleaner and more joined-up. We are also committed to reducing the harmful pollution from vehicles and cleaning up the air across the borough, which will undoubtedly benefit our residents and visitors and help to safeguard their health.
"We want local people to help us shape our plans and be able to have their say on the future of this borough, so I encourage all residents to respond to the consultation."
The Council will work in partnership with Transport for London (TfL) and others to help deliver the Local Implementation Plan, which will contribute to the wider transport vision for London set out in the Mayor's Transport Strategy.
The consultation ends on Friday 14 December.
