Network & Environment

  • Significant reduction in traffic levels and delays within the city centre.
  • An increase of 5% in total journeys terminating in the city centre by all modes.
  • A small reduction in overall traffic levels and delays between the inner and outer cordons, and only small changes outside the outer cordon.
  • Slight increase in orbital traffic between the cordons, with some localized changes that would require mitigation measures.
  • An increase in public transport use of around 10%.

The investment package would have had further impacts on achievement of transport strategy objectives. These include environmental improvement (for example through grants for clean engines in buses and taxis, and city centre environmental enhancement); social inclusion, through the substantial improvement to public transport; and safety and residential amenity (more funding for 20mph zones and safe routes to schools). It would provide the ability to maintain higher standards of safety and comfort for road, footway and cycleway users through increased maintenance funding.
