The Central London Sub-Regional Transport Partnership (CLSRTP) is a collective of transport officers from central London’s eight local authorities. The partnership, which Cross River Partnership manages and provides strategic direction for, on behalf of TfL, provides a borough-level focus on sub-regional transport priorities.
In addition to enabling regular collaboration and information-sharing between boroughs, the partnership facilitates pilots, trials, demonstrations, policy, strategy and research.
The partnership delivers outcomes for boroughs and TfL, such as those specifically targeting the healthy streets approach to transport.
This years’ programme is being finalised and will be shared shortly.
In 2016/17 the partnership delivered:
- London’s first urban market focused delivery and servicing plans with Chapel Market (LB Islington) East Street (LB Southwark), and Lower Marsh in (LB Lambeth)
- The Villiers Street delivery and servicing plan and best practice guide with Northbank BID (a plan that was drafted in the 2015/16 programme)
- A walkability intervention that has had a measurable impact on promoting walking using the Healthy Streets Check in LB Southwark and a scoping study for delivery ready interventions in central London
- Research in to the impact of 20 mph limits in central London using borough held data to demonstrate links between, reduced speed limits, road safety and positive impact on the number of people walking and cycling
- Funding support to continue the Central London Freight Quality Partnership (CLFQP)
In previous years the partnership has facilitated:
- A secure cycle parking demand and feasibility study
- An area-based delivery and servicing review
- A waste consolidation improvement programme
- European funding for tailored freight logistics programme
- A scoping study for a Low Emission Neighbourhood
“The CLSRTP is a valuable opportunity for all central London borough transport officers, policy makers, and place shapers to collaborate on the key challenges facing central London. The partnership has been instrumental in testing new approaches to freight, encouraging walking and improving air quality, which are of relevance to all partner organisations and are now becoming mainstream approaches to transforming central London into a healthy place to work, visit and conduct business.”
