Following the recent release of the Government's 'Plan for Drivers' policy paper and the Transport Secretary's speech at the Tory Party conference, Addison Lee's CEO has provided support for the proposed changes, particularly in relation to Low Traffic Neighbourhoods (LTNs).

In his comment, Liam Griffin, Addison Lee CEO, expressed a warm welcome for the Government's plan to review the guidance on LTNs and emphasise the importance of local consent.

As discussions around transport policies and Low Traffic Neighbourhoods continue, the call for collaboration and a balanced approach between safety measures and ease of movement remains a crucial consideration for both the Government and private sector players like Addison Lee.

Griffin said: “We welcome plans set out by Government today to review the guidance on Low Traffic Neighbourhoods (LTNs) and focus on local consent.

“As London’s most reliable private hire provider, we have always recognised the importance of safety measures. However, extensive road blocks and consistent lowering of speed limits to 20mph has an impact on congestion across the capital – significantly, and often unnecessarily, impacting the work, lives, and productivity of both Londoners and London businesses.

“Operating in the capital for over 50 years, we have an intricate understanding of the neighbourhoods across our city. We would welcome the opportunity to work more closely with the Mayor and local boroughs to help find the right solutions that support seamless travel for all across the city.”
