We are consulting on the draft City of London Transport Strategy

Visit the City of London Draft Transport Strategy consultation website to see our proposals and have your say. The consultation is open until 13 January 2019.

The City of London Draft Transport Strategy (9MB) sets out how we propose to design and manage our 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
