Mayor of London vows to tackle London’s road congestion

 

November 21, 2016

The Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, today announced a series of measures aimed at directly tackling growing congestion on London’s roads, and improving reliability for all road users.

 

The plans are targeted at easing the immediate congestion problems facing London. This is alongside other more long-term strategic approaches being developed as part of the Mayor’s Transport Strategy, due to be published in draft in Spring 2017.

 

TfL will take immediate steps, using new and improved strategic management, technology and communication, to tackle the problem of congestion in London head-on. The measures being announced include better communication directly with road users to allow them to plan their journeys, and better collaboration to reduce disruption from roadworks.

 

Other measures announced today, TfL will work to:

  • Reduce the time taken to clear up unplanned incidents
  • Manage the rising demand for travel on London’s roads
  • Communicate better with road users to allow people to make more effective decisions about their journeys based on the most accurate and up-to-date information
  • Ensure that the infrastructure that supports the road network, including traffic signals and road surfaces, are reliable, faults are minimised and repairs are carried out faster
  • Collaborate more efficiently with local authorities, utility companies and developers to reduce the impact of planned road works.
