The Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, and TfL have unveiled their ‘London Streetspace’ programme which will rapidly transform London’s streets to accommodate a possible ten-fold increase in cycling and a fivefold increase in walking when lockdown restrictions are eased. TfL will rapidly repurpose London’s streets to serve this unprecedented demand for walking and cycling in a major new strategic shift. There will be rapid construction of a strategic cycling network, using temporary materials, including new routes. Also, there will be a complete transformation of local town centres to enable local journeys to be safely walked and cycled where possible. Wider footways on high streets will facilitate a local economic recovery, with people having space to queue for shops as well as enough space for others to safely walk past while socially distancing. Additionally, traffic will be reduced on residential streets, creating low-traffic neighbourhoods right across London to enable more people to walk and cycle as part of their daily routine, as has happened during lockdown.
