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 City Corporation 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.

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 Square Mile to enjoy a safer, more active journey to work. Join the Active City Network to access exclusive services, feedback on campaigns and work with us to improve our streets.

The City Corporation also offer free cycle skills to people who work, study or live in the Square Mile.
