TfL firms up Streatham Hill walking and cycling measures – transportxtra
Transport for London (TfL) is making permanent measures designed to make roads in?Streatham, south London, safer for walking and cycling.
The scheme complements measures that TfL and Lambeth Council are implementing across the borough as part of the Mayor’s of London’s Streetspace programme, which enables safer walking and cycling during the coronavirus pandemic.
The results of a TfL consultation into the scheme show that 83% of respondents agreed that the proposals would make people feel safer cycling through the area, with 70% saying the same about walking.
Ensuring that people feel safe when walking and cycling is absolutely vital to enable more people to reduce their reliance on cars and switch journeys to more sustainable modes wherever possible.
