Footway widening to aid social distancing?

Walking

18 April 2020
 

Transport for London may reallocate roadspace to pedestrians to help with Covid-19 social distancing policies. 

Will Norman, London’s walking and cycling commissioner, said: “We are looking at the busiest parts of our road network to see where we can give people walking more space. We are [also] looking to adjust traffic signals to make it easier for people to cross while still enabling critical workers to use the road network easily.”

Norman said TfL and City Hall would work with London boroughs who wanted to reduce traffic on residential streets “as long as this does not hinder the emergency services or other essential journeys”.
