Haringey Council has been nominated as the Transport Borough of the Year by a national trade magazine, the Transport Times.
The nomination follows the Sustainable Transport Team's groundbreaking work to improve safety and ease congestions and pollution in the borough as well as to promote behaviour change among residents to more sustainable means of travel.
Cabinet Member for the Environment, Cllr Nilgun Canver, said:
It's great to get some recognition for the dedicated work of the transport team. We have tried to make it possible for residents to ditch the car at certain times and use public transport, cycles or to walk safely to their destination.
We are keen to cut congestion and promote smarter travel by improving sustainable transport access to town centres, key amenities and employment areas. We hope to cut CO2 emissions by 20% by 2020 and this shapes all our highways' works and traffic management.
Key schemes include:
The council is working on an extensive network of sustainable transport options, improving accessibility for all, and encouraging behavioural change.
These schemes will improve road safety, ease parking congestion, reducing carbon emissions, tackle health and deprivation inequalities and improve sustainable transport access to town centres, key amenities and employment areas.
I guess they never get the W3!
