Travel Plan


Over the last 18 months we have been through a campus wide consultation process. Staff, student and tenant surveys have been conducted and focus groups undertaken.

The Executive Leadership Team has endorsed the new strategy and it has been presented at all relevant University committees over the last 12 months.

The Travel Plan sets out a management strategy to deliver the University’s sustainable travel objectives through a package of measures which promote and encourage more sustainable travel choices through behaviour change. It is also integral to the campus landscape master plan, future development on campus and a requirement of local authority planning conditions.

The overall aim of the Travel Plan is to ensure that Loughborough University is an accessible University for staff, students and visitors without negatively impacting on the surrounding area.

The primary aim of the Travel Plan set in 2010 was to encourage ‘active’ travel (walking & cycling), reduce single vehicle occupancy and satisfy HEFCE requirements for the reporting on and reduction of travel related carbon emissions. It has shown success in implementing shift to more sustainable modes of travel and shift to lower emission vehicles.

Headline Results

The revised plan will increase emphasis on the Health & Wellbeing of all staff, students and tenants by continuing to encourage ‘active’ travel on campus, improving the road network to reduce congestion and provide a safe environment for pedestrian and cyclists.

The University will continue to actively persuade staff, students and visitors to change their travel habits in favour of more sustainable modes whilst ensuring that any restrictions placed on travelling onto the campus are matched with positive actions to support other modes of travel.
