The HATF Steering Group is responsible for overseeing the plan and monitoring progress against the agreed targets. Responsibility for development and delivery of initiatives will be delegated to working groups, made up of key stakeholders. Annual action plans will be produced and used as the mechanism for delivering the plan.
We intend to continue with the four established working groups: travel behaviours & cycling, rail, bus and coach, and freight. We will establish new working groups if the need arises to meet any work that develops that is not covered by an existing group.
Travel Behaviours and Cycling
The travel behaviours and cycling working group will be responsible for user issues, focusing on staff travel initiatives and passenger information (including way finding and technology). It will also be responsible for reviewing issues related to campus connectivity. This group will also be responsible for cycling issues including route development, promotions and improving safety.
The rail working group will be responsible for initiatives associated with the planning and development of new rail connections to Heathrow, including ways to minimise disruption during implementation. It covers high speed rail, conventional rail and London Underground.
Bus and Coach
The bus and coach working group will be responsible for network development, fleet emissions and issues relating to the bus and coach stations around Heathrow.
The freight working group will be responsible for all issues relating to freight operations at Heathrow, including deliveries, cargo, operational controls and improving efficiency of the logistics.
