Changing travel habits during COVID-19 have given us a glimpse of a healthier future, where more people walk and cycle and our air is clearer.
Transport for London (TfL) has predicted a 10-fold increase in cycle traffic and a five-fold increase in pedestrian numbers as lockdown eases.
The road to recovery
As lockdown restrictions are eased, we want to support and encourage people to adopt greener, more active forms of transport whilst socially distancing.
We have developed a plan to introduce short, medium and longer-term improvements to walking and cycling infrastructure in the borough. We're welcoming comments on this overarching plan until 16 August 2020.
Draft measures include: new low traffic neighbourhoods, school streets, new pop up cycle lanes and bike parking, further pavement widening in town centres, and bus supporting measures.We've also launched an interactive website where we're encouraging residents to nominate locations for potential walking and cycling easier and safer improvements in their local area.
Changes will be made as and when funding becomes available.
