London transport objectives outlined in Sustrans’ manifesto

09.34 | 5 July 2011 | | 1 comment

A default 20mph limit on streets where we ‘live, work, shop and play’ is among a raft of new measures included in Sustrans’ ‘A quality of life manifesto for transport in our capital’.

Sustrans is a UK based charity which attempts to make smarter travel choices possible, desirable and inevitable. The manifesto is aimed at London Assembly and Mayoral candidates in the run up to the 2012 elections in London.

Other measures in the manifesto include an increase in the mode share for cycle trips to 10% and for walking trips to 30% by 2020; a commitment to making walking and cycling the norm for a half of school journeys; and the cycling revolution to be focussed on outer London where need and potential are greatest.

Sustrans says its objectives can be summarised into four key areas: A ‘greater’ greater London; a city of twenty; free range kids; and quality streets.

    Well there is support for the Governments 20 mph in all town and villages objective. So we can now expect it to be made more public.
