§ Mr. Corbyn
To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, pursuant to his oral answer of 14 January,Official Report, column 606, if he will outline the programme of monitoring for the pilot red route scheme being undertaken by his Department; and if he will make a statement on the effects so far of the routes' introduction.
§ Mr. Chope
Monitoring will cover safety, public transport performance, vehicle flow counts, parking surveys, shopping activity, pedestrian movement, journey times, enforcement data, loading activity and the use of rat runs.
Present indications are that traffic, including buses, is flowing more freely and that there is less illegal parking, but it is too soon to reach firm conclusions.
