The key objectives for the access and movement strategy for the new town will be to:
The site is immediately accessible from the A70.
Movement within the town is promoted on foot, electric bikes, electric buggies and electric bus. The Co-op will operate its own Electric Transport Company with frequent services.
Routes designated for visitor traffic will minimise the intrusive effects of traffic within the town centre and other internal roads.
Car parking at selected nodes will be provided for, accessed from the main traffic routes and served by the internal public transport system.
- integrate transport and land use to minimise travel distances.
- provide environmentally friendly forms of transport as a viable alternative to private car travel; and
- support the creation of places for people with attractive and safe environments where the car does not dominate.
