Joint Progress Report 2009
In March 2006 the four councils in the West of England sub-region joined forces to produce a Joint Local Transport Plan.
The JLTP covers the period from 2006 to 2011, and includes a range of integrated strategies to tackle congestion, improve road safety, air quality and accessibility and enhance the overall quality of life of all people living and working in the West of England.
A mid term progress Review was published in December 2008, which looked back over the delivery of the JLTP in 2006/7 and 2007/8 the first two years of the 5-year plan period. In commenting on the Progress Review the Government Office of the South West (GOSW) said that ‘overall we consider that your JLTP strategies are being delivered and that you have made considerable progress in the first two years…’This report summarises the progress we have since made in 2008/9, the third year of our programme. The clear majority of our targets remain in track to be achieved by 2010/11. We have also continued to contribute towards the wider objectives set in our Local Area Agreements.
