We need to completely rethink the way in which we get into and around the city centre. We want to create a greener aEscooters and people walkingnd calmer city centre that people want to spend time in. However, motor vehicles and especially private cars detract from its environment making it less attractive for residents and visitors.

The Vision will need to address these issues by reducing the number of vehicles in and around the city centre and by making its roads cleaner and greener. We also recognise that there will continue to be some level of reliance on travel by car.

We will seek to reduce this over time by removing the barriers preventing people from moving to more sustainable / active travel options

We also want to increase footfall in the historic core by improving connectivity with other parts of the city centre. We will also investigate proposals to introduce more multi-modal hubs around the city centre, providing a range of transport options.

Key discussion points in this section included:

  • Promoting Sustainable Transport
  • Public Transport and Active Travel
  • Car Parking
  • Multi-Modal Hubs
  • Taming the Ringroad
  • Air Quality/Air pollution
  • Improved Connectivity within the Ring Road
  • Improving Connectivity between City Centre and Adjoining areas

Priorities for Taming the Inner Ring Road

3 months

The Ambition document introduces the concept of 'taming' the inner ring road; this could include narrowing the carriageway, reducing vehicle speeds and greening to create a safe and attractive environment for pedestrians and cyclists.

We have identified potential priority locations for this.   

You can place a pin marker onto the map and add your comments to tell us:

  • whether we have identified the right priority areas. 
  • if there are any other areas we should be prioritising.

Lime green areas = priorities for taming the inner ring road  

CLOSED: This map consultation has concluded.
