    from 1.3

    Everyone benefits from sustainable transport because it means that we are:
    • Keeping the air cleaner through alternative travel choices, such as walking, cycling to work, using public transport or using electric vehicles, while improving public health;
    • Improving safety for travellers, especially for people with disabilities, children, older residents and other vulnerable road users such as pedestrians and cyclists;

    1.13 In July 2019, the London Borough of Sutton declared a climate emergency, and pledged to make the borough carbon neutral. Air quality improvements and carbon reduction are byproducts of, and some of many reasons for, sustainable transport.

    from section 4

    Cycle mode share is low, 1.1% of all journeys and among the lowest share in London. 

    5.7 Essentially, more people in Sutton are choosing to use their car for journeys of less than 2km than anywhere else in London.

    See Section 6 re. cycling. 

    6.12 The existing number of cycling trips made each year in Sutton is 7,700, out of a total in outer London of 208,200 trips.
    However, there is a potential for 234,900 daily cyclable trips, which would mean that 3% of all borough journeys would be by cycle. This
    figure is higher than boroughs of similar size and population such as Harrow, Merton and Richmond upon Thames.
    6.13 As with walkable trips, Sutton also has the highest number of potentially cyclable trips per resident that are currently made by a motorised mode of travel22.

  • Sutton Local Implementation Plan 3

    Created by Charles Martin // 1 thread

    The council is undertaking a public consultation on its draft third Local Implementation Plan (LIP). This is a statutory document that outlines how Sutton will contribute to meeting the outcomes and objectives in the new Mayor of London’s Transport Strategy, published earlier this year. It also outlines key proposals for transport schemes in the borough for the next three years (to 2021) and longer term ambitions to 2041.

  • Central Road Worcester Park

    Created by Marcus Howarth // 1 thread

    see https://sutton.citizenspace.com/environment/centralroad/

    "proposals to improve the flow of traffic and improve the environment for residents, traders, pedestrians, cyclists and users of public transport. The aim of the scheme is to encourage more people to walk, cycle or use public transport and reduce the number of local car trips. Funding for this scheme is available from Transport for London."

    How is this going to achieve this by creating a few parking bays and a new sign for a car park?
