Road safety

Date created: 6/08/2020

A road danger reduction approach

The Road Danger Reduction and Active Travel Plan 2018-2023 is a strategic five-year plan that sets out the key aims and objectives to maintain a safe environment for all road users in the City of London. It follows a Safe Systems Approach towards delivering Vision Zero by 2041, to ensure that all deaths and serious injuries will be eliminated from London's transport network.

The plan is part of the Transport Strategy and emphasises partnership and engagement. We have a role to play in reducing casualties and encouraging safer speeds, safer streets, safer vehicles and safer behaviours.

The Road Danger Reduction team works in close partnership with the City of London Police and Transport for London, providing guidance and bespoke information to businesses, schools and residents to encourage safe, active travel in the Square Mile.

Road safety training in schools

We are committed to supporting sustainable and safe travel to school. Children enjoy a fun-packed programme while being taught valuable skills. We believe educating children from a young age encourages responsible future road users and safer travel behaviours.

  • Walking and pedestrian skills - lessons on travelling safely
  • Cycle skills - 'Bikeability' training for schools
  • Road safety education - schools visits to discuss safety and equip students with confidence whilst travelling

For more information contact your child's school or the Road Danger Reduction team.

Active City Network

The vision of the Active City Network is to work in partnership with City employers to create a safe, harmonious and healthy environment for travelling by active modes in the Square Mile.

Through the Network we can provide training and guidance to employees in the City to enjoy a safer, more active journey to work.
