Parking spaces to go as Lewisham sets out Sustainable Street Strategy – Transport Xtra
Lewisham Council is to replace parking spaces with trees, EV charging points, cycle storage, and safer crossings and junctions. More car club and disabled bays will also be installed.
The borough said the first phase of its Sustainable Streets programme will focus on the roads around Deptford and Catford, with changes due to start next summer.
Better use of pavements and road space will improve local streets and road safety, reduce noise, traffic, and air pollution, and help more people walk, cycle and use public transport, the council states.
