Section 3.4 of 'The Walking Plan for London' (February 2004, p.27) states that a quarterly rolling LATS (London Area Transport Study) will be a principal tool for monitoring the successful delivery of 'The Walking Plan for London.' Are these quarterly rolling LATS being conducted, and if so where is the data produced by them published?

The London Travel Demand Survey (LTDS) has been developed by TfL as the 'rolling LATS'. It is seen as an annual rolling survey, not quarterly. Results from the 2005/06 survey are due to be released in the near future. As the LTDS is a household-based interview survey, it should provide information on the trips made by all members of a household by all modes of travel, including walking. It will therefore enable the modal share for walking trips to be monitored.
