In Docklands, we prefer to walk to work

27 Sep 2011

More people in Docklands walk to work than just about anywhere in the developed world.

More than a third of Docklanders say they are living the dream and have consigned the commute to a previous life.

Consultants undertaking the Docklands Transport Plan say they compared Docklands with 100 European cities and could find only one where a larger proportion of residents walked to work – tiny Ponto Delgada in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean.

In preparing for the Docklands Transport Plan, a massive survey was undertaken which has provided a rich pool of data.

A travel behaviours survey was issued to more than 18,000 Docklands workers, 6000 residents, 2500 football spectators and 900 visitors.

More than 25 per cent of workers, 5 per cent of residents and over 3000 visitors completed the survey.

The surveys were issued to help understand travelling habits to and from Docklands.

Early results from the surveys indicate that a high proportion of Docklands’ residents either walk or catch public transport as their major transport method to work:

  • 34 per cent of residents walk to work;
  • 30 per cent of residents catch public transport to work;
  • 30 per cent of residents drive to work; and
  • 6 per cent of residents cycle to work.

Further information regarding the survey results of residents, workers and visitors will be released shortly and the Docklands Transport Plan is anticipated to be released later in the year.
