Milton Keynes, United Kingdom

Milton Keynes is located in the South East of England, almost mid-way between London and Birmingham, the 2 biggest cities in England. It is a new town (celebrating 50 years in 2017) with a population of 255,000 inhabitants and a population growth is to be expected in the next years (302,100 by 2026).

The city is based on a grid system (lay out based on Los Angeles, with many roundabouts) and driving is easy which makes the promotion of sustainable mobility difficult.
Milton Keynes (MK) has a record of transport and mobility related work, from the original city planning to managing the growth in urban transport/commuting and leisure (cycling & pedestrian networks). The city as originally planned favoured motorised transport, considering cycling and pedestrian access predominantly for leisure use.

The city is currently undergoing major change due to growth, especially in transport/mobility.
Current strategies and policies, and those under consideration point to a city in transition to a Low Carbon future, including the decarbonisation of local transport. To this end, the city is encouraging modal change in transport/mobility and the electrification of motorised transport.
