Khan promises more accurate journey time info to reduce traffic in London

Sadiq Khan has today announced plans to improve traffic on London’s roads, including new investment in bus services.

Bus priority schemes will see an £50m, while there will be extra communication and improved accuracy for journey time information.

“Ensuring people can get around our city easily and efficiently is vital for London’s future prosperity,” Khan said.

“We need to be much smarter in how we use our roads and tackle the causes of congestion head-on. Today I’m setting out practical and immediate steps we can take to reduce disruption, including better prioritising buses on our streets, better information for road users, and substantial improvements in how roadworks are coordinated.”

The move comes after various other public transport boosts in recent months, such as the popular new “Hopper” bus fare.

Simon Moore, from the Confederation of British Industry (CBI), said: “To ensure London remains an attractive place to work and do business, it is vital that we have good quality and reliable infrastructure networks.

“With congestion across our road network highlighted as a top transport priority for firms, businesses will welcome the Mayor’s package of measures to ease blockers across our roads.
