WARWICKSHIRE - OUR COUNTY 1998-2001
Priority : Transport

To provide a fairer transport system

Our lives are shaped by transport. Transport has enriched our lives but at a cost which keeps going up. Road traffic has increased dramatically with profound consequences for the environment and the way we live. We want a transport system that meets the needs of people and business and produces better places in which to live and work.

Targets:

  • We will review our transport strategy and publish a provisional, interim local transport plan for the County by July 1999 and a full, final and integrated local transport plan by July 2000.
     
  • We will consult widely in reviewing our transport strategy and in preparing our local transport plan with local people, businesses, transport operators and community groups using consensus building techniques.
     
  • We will build and extend partnerships with other local authorities, with transport operators and freight companies to improve the provision and operation of transport services for Warwickshire.
     
  • We will encourage greater use of public transport, and will seek to improve access to these services.
     
  • We will include draft road traffic reduction targets in the local transport plan published in July 1999 and firm traffic reduction targets in the local transport plan published in July 2000.
     
  • We will ensure that, by 2000, each rural community with more than 500 residents has at least one off–peak public transport service Monday - Saturday, to and from the nearest town.
     
  • We will take steps to cut the number of casualties from serious road accidents, in every year up to 2001.
     
  • We will set targets for improving the safety of people as they travel that reflect the new national targets when they are published by Government (new national targets are expected to be published in early 1999).
