Answered By: 
The Mayor

The Commission for Integrated Transport's (CFIT's) study of transport across all European states provides useful benchmarking information for the comparison of transport issues such as travel patterns, road safety, environmental performance, freight and aviation, at a national level. TfL has considered the relevance of the report as part of its ongoing work in tracking international best practice to shape transport policy and practice for London. I have no immediate plans to change the emphasis of any of my transport policies as a direct result of this specific report.
