For this reason, a set of five Transport Values have been designed aimed at getting people to reflect on their behaviour and attitudes. They are one way in which everyone can contribute in a positive and proactive way to improving conditions on the city's roads.
Implemented in stages, the system's Phase 1A and 1B have been successfully completed, with Rea Vaya and the Department of Transport now working closely together to kick off Phase 1C.
