Low traffic neighbourhoods (LTNs) cut traffic and air pollution without displacing the problem to nearby streets, according to research by Imperial College London.
The study looked at three LTNs in Islington to identify their impact on both air pollution and traffic within the zones and in the surrounding area.
Many LTNs were installed during 2020, to prevent an increase in vehicle traffic as people avoided public transport through fear of infection during the Covid-19 pandemic.
