Possible reactions
  • Keep adding to supply in the hope of keeping up
    with demand
  • (roads, parking, heavy rail, LRT)
  • SMART growth
  • (high density, high accessibility, modal shift,
    reduce need to travel)
  • Fingers crossed (bit of both)

14
London
  • In all practical senses it is impossible to
    fund/build/manage enough supply to cope with
    demand
  • Feedback mechanisms are powerful enough to send
    us off course even if we try

Delivery
  • 30 million mobility management intervention

    national standard for travel plans)
  • Extension of congestion charging
  • Huge investment and design effort in walking and
    cycling
  • Climate change plan

22
Targeting work places
  • 150,000 businesses in London
  • Congestion Reduction Potential Analysis
  • Top 30 High Opportunity Enterprises

  • Wide roads/fast moving traffic
  • Barriers and detours
  • City of short distances

Are we missing the point?
  • Water and sewage in mid-19th century cities
  • Child labour in factories and coal mines
  • Slavery
  • London smog
  • Berlin wall
  • Mobility management in the 21st century city
