Why Healthy School Streets are being implemented
School Streets are being introduced around the country. Where pilot schemes have been introduced, residents and parents alike have benefited from the traffic reduction.
So far, the pilot schemes have resulted in:
15% to 25% reduction in car use
23% to 65% increase in active travel
Stopping the spread of coronavirus
During lockdown, between 24% and 47% of people nationwide switched from public transport to active travel
We need to enable this trend to continue as part of our coronavirus recovery
