The City of London Corporation has developed a long-term Transport Strategy, which aims to tackle air quality, congestion and road danger within the Square Mile.
According to the organisation, over 500,000 workers commute into London’s business district each day, which spans over one square mile.

Commenting on the proposals, Chris Hayward, Planning & Transportation chairman at the City of London Corporation, said: “I am delighted that the City Corporation engaged with over 2,500 people during the earlier public consultations, the findings from which shaped these proposals.
“The Square Mile is a unique place to travel, therefore radical proposals are required to future-proof this world class, growing business and cultural centre.â€?
He continued: “We know that the way that the vast majority of people get to the City is different than elsewhere across the world, with 93% of commuters arriving here by public transport, walking or cycling.”
The Strategy includes further proposals which address accessibility issues for those with mobility needs, on street security, electric vehicle charging infrastructure, emerging technology among others.
The draft Strategy will be presented to the Planning and Transportation Committee for consideration on Tuesday 30 October. If approved, consultation on the Strategy and draft Delivery Plan, which outlines how the City Corporation will phase short-term deliverables over the next three years, will begin in November.
The final Strategy will be submitted to City Corporation decision making bodies in Spring 2019.
