Take action on boundary roads

Available evidence says that traffic on already busy boundary roads should not significantly increase in response to the filters, but this is not enough. Boundary roads need improvement through other measures, such as additional crossings and traffic calming measures to ensure that residents of these roads also benefit from the scheme, as well as the wider community.

Strengthen the network of modal filters to make safer routes rather than individually filtered streets

Modal filters work together by creating zones with few entrances and exits, removing through traffic. Poorly placed individual filters have reduced benefits, simply creating individual quiet streets. The placement of filters must be designed to create active transport routes that connect the entire community, not just those who live on the filtered streets.

Encourage walking and cycling via other measures, including School Streets and walking buses, improvements to pavements, provision for cycle parking, etc.

As well as reducing traffic, other barriers to active travel must too be tackled. These include but are not limited to: danger from school drop-off traffic, dangers from poorly maintained pavements, and a lack of safe storage for bicycles.
