We are running a rolling programme to inspect all new developments' cycle parking provision. This is to ensure compliance with cycle parking guidance, and enable active travel to and from these new buildings.
Delivery and Service Plans (DSPs) have the potential to mitigate potentially serious congestion issues across all street types from High Streets to residential roads but until now their use has been scant and their performance remains unknown. The purpose of this project is to provide an understanding of the current situation for securing DSPs and to use this as the basis for creating guidance for best practice in the development and future management of DSPs in West London.
WestTrans is working on demand-response bus options to service parts of West London which are under-served by traditional modes of public transport.
WestTrans' innovative e-bike trial
Across West London there are now many types of EV charger. WestTrans is therefore producing leaflets containing all the relevant information on EV charging, for distribution to car dealers across the sub-region.
WestTrans are delivering WRRR at a sub-regional level for West London. We have partnered with West London Alliance to deliver this project which we hope will build upon our current work in freight and makes the most of our existing relationships with contractors, planning authorities and local authorities to further reduce risk for vulnerable road users.
WestTrans launched a Freight Strategy for West London, from which has come the Freight Steering Group.
WestTrans offer support to higher education and further education (HE/FE) institutions, key trip generators and ideal places within which to engage with young people at a stage when they start to form adult travel behaviours as they become legally able to drive and independent.
WestTrans is part of a number of networks and forums.
London's bus network will be vital in helping more and more Londoners use sustainable modes to make their journeys. WestTrans is working with TfL to improve transport along 6 key routes in West London.
Since June 2012 WestTrans has taken full responsibility for monitoring the implementation of Development Control Travel Plans across five of the six West London boroughs. Harrow Council takes responsibility for its own Travel Plan monitoring.
A new railway for West London, connecting the subregion's major centres, has recently been given the green light by TfL. WestTrans will be working alongside key partners to deliver projects as part of this orbital railway in the coming years.
