Salix's Response to the City of London Transport Strategy

The City of London’s Transport Strategy was opened for public consultation in order for comments and feedback to inform the final version of the Transport Strategy, which is due to be published in Spring 2019. The strategy intends to set out how the City proposes to design and manage its streets to ensure the Square Mile remains a great place to live, work, study and visit. The Strategy is a major opportunity to enable the continued growth of the City  as a global financial centre and its development as a major cultural destination.
