Brent Cross: Hammerson's total incompetence and Standard Life's low-key inadequacy! Can Transport for London rescue their unsustainable project? (Hopefully not with 29,000 extra cars every day, though)

"Outer London orbital rail??

"An increased demand on limited road space means congestion is likely to remain a feature of the network in 2021/22. To address this, we will need to consider new ways of managing demand and providing capacity for living and moving. To understand the scope of change needed and the role of strategic measures, we will begin a series of further studies to understand their application more fully. These will include:
  • A study of the Inner Ring Road, to assess its strategic ‘moving’ function and role in enabling new development
  • Assessment of further measures to tackle congestion including increases in junction and link capacity, and enhancements to orbital capacity
  • Feasibility studies to assess more radical solutions. For example, physical measures to improve the public realm cater for growth, and increased levels of cycling and pedestrian activity while providing alternative space for vehicle movement
  • Assessment of measures to further manage demand in Inner and Outer London, including: 'maximum' application of smarter travel initiatives; time or area-based HGV restrictions; a tougher town centre first higher density, mixed development policy, including parking restraint; and ‘car-lite’ housing development
  • Development of a longer term strategy for delivery and servicing activity in London,potentially complementing work to develop an Ultra Low Emission Zone andincluding consideration of restrictions on vehicle access to central London.
"TfL will start these studies immediately, and aim to complete them by late 2015"
