Question

The Mayor seemed positively disposed towards retaining the "Park and Ride" car-parks that will be provided for the 2012 Olympics close to the M25 north and south of the river to the East of London. Is any other work going on to carry forward Proposal 4E.14 of the Mayor's Transport Strategy - for example to make provision for cars coming off the M40 at Hillingdon or off the M1 at Junction 4 near Stanmore?

In line with Proposal 4E.14 of the Mayor's Transport Strategy, TfL has developed the `Park and Ride Assessment Framework for London'. This was published in November 2004.

The Park and Ride Assessment Framework is designed to be used to evaluate all proposed park and ride sites and schemes in London. As with any proposals for permanent park and ride sites, any schemes proposed for either Stanmore or Hillingdon would be assessed using this framework.

There are already car parks at both Stanmore and Hillingdon Underground stations and TfL at present has no long term plans to expand upon this provision.
