§ Mr. John Hunt
asked the Secretary of State for Transport when he expects to issue his traffic management guidance for London; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Peter Bottomley
We hope to issue this shortly. Our aim will be to foster measures to handle London's existing traffic more efficiently, reliably and safely on the roads best suited for this purpose. This will be to the benefit of all road users, whether by public or private transport, in 433W vehicles or on foot. It will also offer new opportunities to divert traffic from unsuitable residential roads, and to create a better and safer environment for all.
