Reading Transport Strategy 2036

The draft Reading Transport Strategy 2036 (RTS 2036) has been developed as the statutory Local Transport Plan (LTP4) for the Borough of Reading and sets the strategy to 2036 for a cleaner, healthier and more sustainable Reading. The draft RTS 2036 contains schemes to tackle poor air quality and congestion and to help Reading achieve its net zero carbon target in less than a decade.

The RTS 2036 Statutory Consultation closed 30 August 2020.

Following our online Questions and Answers session we have produced a Frequently Asked Questions document with answers to some of the questions we were not able to cover in the session.

RTS 2036 Annex A – Visioning Consultation Responses

Over the summer of 2019 we ran a consultation to get your input into the new Reading Transport Strategy 2036 and more than 3,500 of you got involved through events, drop in sessions, school workshops and our online survey. Your input helped shape the direction of the strategy, confirming the core strategic themes and priorities.

The LCWIP sets out ambitious plans to transform our streets and encourage more people to choose cycling and walking for local journeys, or as part of longer multimodal journeys.
