Walking has so many benefits – it doesn’t just enable us to get from A to B, but also improves our mental and physical health.

LONDON WANTS TO BECOME THE WORLD’S MOST WALKABLE CITY

Mayor of London Sadiq Khan continues with actions towards his goal of making London the world’s most walkable city. 18 pedestrian crossings in London will be programmed to show a continuous green person signal until traffic approaches to prioritise people walking, meaning the green light will be shown until a vehicle is detected, making it easier for people to cross the road and enabling more journeys on foot.

Transport for London (TfL) stated that this technology will be in place by the end of this month. It has already been delivered on seven locations, while the other 11 will be ready next week. This will help make the capital’s transport network even more sustainable and support a green recovery from the coronavirus pandemic.

Will Norman, London’s walking and cycling commissioner, said: “Walking has so many benefits – it doesn’t just enable us to get from A to B, but also improves our mental and physical health. We know that safety is a key concern for people walking around London, and giving pedestrians priority is a powerful way of putting them first and making it easier to cross London’s roads. By combining this with creating extra pavement space and ensuring roadworks are carried out in a way that doesn’t disrupt Londoners, we will make our city the world’s most walkable and eradicate collisions on our streets.”
