The overall objective of the travel plan is to try to make sure that all users (staff and shoppers) use more sustainable forms of transport, where possible, instead of single occupancy car travel. This will help to minimise our impact on the environment.
Other objectives of the plan include:
• Making sure that on-site facilities are provided, which encourage sustainable travel.
• Providing travel information to all users of intu Eldon Square to enable them to make an informed choice of how they travel to the Centre.
• Establishing and developing partnerships with the local authority, transport operators, businesses in the Newcastle area, and others in promoting sustainable travel.
At the same time, the plan will also provide:
Increased travel choice - a wider range of travel options, savings and benefits will enhance the recruitment and retention of staff working here as well as providing easier access to intu Eldon Square for a greater number of visitors.
Health benefits - many alternative forms of travel include an element of exercise that will lead to a healthier workforce, possibly leading to reduced rates of illness and a reduction in health related absences.
