Tackling congestion

ten pledges, five years, one community

By 2016 more people will choose to travel sustainably, congestion will remain at 2011 levels and air quality will not have worsened.

In order to meet this aim, we would expect to see progress on the following measures during the next five years:

  • keeping traffic movements on Canterbury‚Äôs ring road to 2011 levels
  • increasing the number of people using park and ride
  • improving air quality measures
  • seeing a reduction in the proportion of people saying that traffic congestion needs to be improved.
