Quote:5.2 A central/inner London study is intended to better understand the long term vision for central London and the role of the Inner Ring Road (IRR). The IRR forms the diversionary route around the congestion charging zone and is key to movement in inner London. However, much of the IRR is equally important for its ‘place’ function and a series of major developments are underway or planned in areas such as Vauxhall, Nine Elms, Battersea, Elephant & Castle and Euston. The study will seek to understand the extent (and benefits) of place ambition, how it may be achieved, and to what extent traffic congestion might increase.
5.3 In parallel, the study will explore whether the provision of alternative ‘replacement’ capacity elsewhere in inner London – in the form of a new tolled tunnel – could be effective and feasible in order to sustain network functioning.
