NBTN – Mainstreaming sustainable business travel in the UK

Best practice case study: University of Hertfordshire

  • Major employer and business in Hertfordshire
  • Main impact: the use of transport by staff, students and visitors - pollution and congestion, annoyance of neighbours through on-street parking, valuable space taken up by campus car-parks, the costs of maintaining and administering campus car-parks and the loss of staff time due to congestion and parking difficulties. 
  • In the UK , there was a 65% increase in motor vehicle traffic between 1980 and 1997. Almost all of this was due to increases in car traffic, which accounted for nearly 82% of all road traffic in 1998.
  • Hertfordshire has one of the highest car ownership rates in the country with traffic growth in the county expected to rise by more than a third of its current rate in the next twenty years.  
  • Need to work in partnership with local authorities and neighbours to achieve a reduced impact on transport.
