Wandsworth Council has set out measures designed to improve safety and support social distancing on roads and pavements.
The inner London council’s projects include the potential closure of some roads, widening of pavements and introduction of one-way walking systems, improvements to cycling routes and fast tracking School Streets projects.
Other measures that will be explored, developed and delivered over the next few weeks and months could include:
Transport spokesman Cllr Paul Ellis said: “We are exploring a whole range of measures to improve the different ways of travelling and in particular ensure that people can walk and cycle safely and more easily. We are fully committed to doing what we can in an imaginative and effective way to encourage people to adopt new forms of travel and supporting them to do so in the safest possible way.
"It’s action like this which will help us meet the far-reaching environmental targets we set last year to dramatically lower our carbon emissions to make us inner London’s greenest borough. We would also like to see a 20mph speed limit introduced without delay by TfL on all the borough’s major red route trunk roads like the Wandsworth one-way system, Balham High Road, West Hill, Tooting High Street, Trinity Road and Battersea Park Road. It is on these busiest roads that lower speed limits are crucial if we are to encourage people to switch travel modes.”
