Transport strategy

Date updated: 23/03/2023

The Transport Strategy, adopted in May 2019, sets out how the City of London Corporation propose to design and manage the City’s streets to ensure the Square Mile remains a great place to live, work, study and visit. It includes ambitious proposals to:

  • Prioritise the needs of people walking, make streets more accessible and deliver world-class public realm
  • Make the most efficient and effective use of street space by significantly reducing motor traffic, including the number of delivery and servicing vehicles in the Square Mile
  • Eliminate death and serious injuries from our streets through measures to deliver safer streets and reduce speeds
  • Enable more people to choose to cycle by making conditions for cycling in the Square Mile safer and more pleasant
  • Improve air quality and reduce noise by encouraging and enabling the switch to zero emission capable vehicles

The consultation reports and other reports and resources prepared or used in the preparation of the Transport Strategy are available on request from the Strategic Transportation Team

The Transport Strategy Delivery Plan summarises progress to date, sets out the delivery plan for 2020/21 – 2020/22 and explains the 2019 street traffic counts. Go to Planning and Transport Committee Agenda 8 September 2020 for information.
