Transport Strategy for Businesses 2019-41

Tower Hamlets has more traffic than anywhere else in the UK. By 2041, the Mayor of London wants 90% of journeys to be by foot, cycle or public transport to reduce traffic congestion and pollution, and improve people’s health.
The council would like to hear views from businesses in the borough regarding transport and any barriers that your organisation, or staff, face.
