The Committee received a joint report of the Director of the Built Environment and the Commander, Operations which updated on progress made in relation to the City of London Corporation’s Road Danger Reduction Plan (RDRP).

 

The City had a live project to improve the junction at Bank. The project was initiated and approved by Members in December 2013 and was proceeding to programme. Members noted the four objectives set for the Bank Project -

·         To reduce casualties by simplifying the junction and reducing conflict.

·         To reduce pedestrian crowding on the footways

·         To improve air quality; and finally

·         To improve the perception of place.

 

Members were informed that the City Corporation and Police to jointly review casualty data to improve information on causation factors and that work was being undertaken regarding casualty hot spots which would be provided to Members in due course.

The Committee referred to effective management of traffic conflicts and raising awareness to road users.

 

The traffic light signalling at Southwark was highlighted as a concern and it was that this matter would be raised with Transport for London.
