(2)The Director may divide the network plan into such parts as he considers appropriate and prepare and submit those parts separately.

(c)any London authority within whose area there is any road which, in the opinion of the Director, is likely to be affected;

(d)such county councils (if any) as he thinks appropriate;

(e)such associations of London authorities (if any) as he thinks appropriate; and

(f)London Regional Transport.

(5)The network plan shall, in particular, include provision with respect to—

(a)the Director’s overall objectives for particular priority routes;

(b)the traffic management measures which he expects to see taken in relation to priority routes in general or particular priority routes;

(c)the Director’s requirements as to the timetable for the phased introduction of the priority route network; and

(d)the operation and maintenance of traffic management measures taken in respect of priority routes.

(6)The Director may from time to time vary the network plan, but before doing so he shall consult the persons mentioned in subsection (4) above.

(7)In preparing any variation, the Director shall have regard to the Secretary of State’s traffic management guidance and to the needs of people with a disability.

(8)After varying the network plan, the Director shall submit it to the Secretary of State and to each of the London authorities.

(a)keep the network plan under review; and

(b)have regard to the desirability of varying it, particularly in the light of any further guidance issued by the Secretary of State under section 51 of this Act.
