|Have Your Say on The Future of Transport in Ealing|
Public meetings coming up
Ealing Council wants your views on the future of transport in the borough. The draft Local Implementation Plan (LIP) is now out for public consultation and there are several events organised for the public to attend and give their views.
The LIP is a statutory document prepared by each London borough to implement the Mayor of London’s Transport Strategy (MTS). It sets out the borough’s main transport objectives with a delivery and monitoring strategy highlighting how we are to progress our programmes with reference to the mayor’s priority areas.
The current LIP is valid until April 2011 when the council needs to produce a new one reflecting any changes to Mayoral transport strategy and our own priorities.
The council is now in the process of developing its second LIP which will set our objectives and key priorities for the period from 2011 to 2014 and it is on this draft that the council wants to gather your views. Proposals in this document include improvements to the Uxbridge Road, which will reduce congestion and increase safety.
Councillor Bassam Mahfouz, cabinet member for Transport and Environment, said:
