Traffic data, analysis and feedback.
Collecting traffic data is a crucial element of our monitoring process that reveals key insights into how the LTN is working towards its objectives. Data has been collected inside LTN areas as well as on the immediate boundary roads that surround them at three separate stages of assessment.
Headlines SYSTRA Stage 2 Monitoring:
The total volume of motor vehicles counted on streets within the LTN has decreased by 54% , but increased by 13% on boundary roads.
Note that the increase in motorcycles, although high in percentage terms, is generally low in absolute terms.

Data gathered through the enforcement cameras show that about 90% of penalty charge notices come from people who live outside of the scheme, with the highest proportion of them living outside of Lambeth.
Instances of penalty charge notices has significantly dropped since the scheme began which indicates that people are not routinely noncomplying.
Through the analysis of bus journey time data provided by TfL, there is no indication that bus journey times have significantly increased on boundary roads due to the LTNs, but where bus routes pass through the LTN - such as Downton Ave (P13) - we have seen an improvement in bus journey times.
Since the start of the stage 2 feedback collecting period in January 2021, we have received 215 traffic related emails.
