Travel Highlights

Published on: 24/10/2018

There has been lots of travel activity across the Park in the past couple of months. Thank you as always for sticking to or trying greener travel options where you can. 

The first update to tell you about is the travel survey highlights. Thank you to those of you who took part in this year's survey. We had just over 1500 responses. Here are some of the main themes we've pulled out of the data so far: 

  • Single occupancy vehicle use has continued to decline from 69% in 2016 to 63% today. This means more people are switching to healthier, greener modes of travel.
  • There has been a 2.5% increase in cycling and car sharing is also on the up.
  • 66% of people that took part in the travel survey have changed the way they travel in the past 12 months
  • 7% of respondents have taking up cycling due to the health benefits 

We believe the opening of the Backhill tunnel outside of the Innovation Centre and the bus services to Great Western Park have hugely helped with this shift in travel patterns. We're hoping to continue to work closely with local authorities to improve the travel connection options in the area. A more comprehensive and detailed report of the travel survey results will be published soon. 

The second update is a rather exciting one. Veronica Reynolds, the Milton Park Travel Advisor is an award winner! Last week, Veronica was crowned The Smarter Travel Professional of the Year at the Smarter Travel Awards. The award was peer judged and recognises an individual who has made an outstanding personal contribution to the industry. Supporting evidence said: "Veronica is a special professional - her career has been totally dedicated to achieving sustainable mobility in our society - and with significant results." 

Congratulations to Veronica and remember to watch this space for more detailed travel survey results.
