Learning from East London Transit plans

I thought I can share with everyone the example of East London Transit plans. I am providing links to the consultation documents below but the features worth noting are -
  1. Lack of wide roads is not allowed to become an excuse for not implementing bus priority schemes.
  2. Focus is on involving the public - the consultation gets wide publicitity, you will note from last page of each link that the document is made available in several languages
  3. Public consultation is a brilliant way of educating people - this enlists their cooperation and hence successful implementation of the programme. Other than internet, Transport for London has exhibited the plans in several exhibitions
  4. Focus is on moving people, public transport, pedestrians facilities and safety is uppermost.
The will to implement tunnels and elevated roads - were it to be transferred to looking at such alternatives we could do a lot.
