Next steps for the draft Local Transport Plan
Thank you to everyone who has been involved and commented on our emerging Portsmouth Transport Strategy. We’ve updated the strategy following the comments received and the final document will be going to Full Council for adoption in October 2021.
The Portsmouth Transport Strategy has been developed to ensure that all residents and visitors can get into, out of and through the city safely and efficiently on all modes of transport, whilst prioritising a travel network that addresses the challenges currently faced. The strategy will seek to create space for residents to transition to cleaner and more sustainable travel options, encouraging behaviour changes and a move towards a greener and more sustainable transport network, whilst still maintaining accessibility for those car journeys which are necessary.
The Portsmouth Transport Strategy will set out the vision for how we want our city to be by 2038. This vision will be underpinned by four strategic objectives and a set of policies for each objective, detailing how we will get there.
Through this website you can find out more about our plans to improve walking, cycling, public transport and air quality in the city. We will be asking for your feedback on our plans and schemes via consultations as they arise. By providing your views you will help us develop accessible travel options for all and together we will shape transport and travel in Portsmouth.
