The Local Transport Plan details Slough’s long-term strategy for transport. This is the third Local Transport Plan (LTP3). It covers 2011-2026.
We are currently refreshing the Local Transport Plan (LTP4) and this page will be updated when the refresh is complete
The priorities of LTP3 are:
- environment - to reduce carbon emissions, protect heritage and habitats, and adapt to a changing climate
- economy and skills – to make sure Slough remains a competitive place to do business as well as to facilitate development for new jobs and housing
- community cohesion – to improve access to opportunities such as jobs and education, and reduce social exclusion
- health and wellbeing – to encourage people to be fitter and healthier through walking and cycling, and to improve air quality and local neighbourhoods
- safer communities – to reduce the number of road accidents and to tackle anti-social behaviour and crime.
Slough is a small and densely packed urban authority with few opportunities for significant new transport infrastructure. As we work under tight financial constraints the LTP has been developed so we provide value for money, mainly through maximising use of existing networks and services.
We will make sure we plan and deliver improvements in partnership with those responsible for delivering a wide range of services and transport, such as bus and train operators and taxi firms. This means we can deliver more targeted, effective and better value improvements to transport.
All LTPs by law must be assessed to make sure there is minimal impact on the environment, known as a Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA).
