Upgrading the Clean Air Route Finder14th July 2020 / Posted by Sefinat Otaru
We’re excited to announce the first phase of upgrades to our Clean Air Route Finder! Since lockdown, more Londoners than ever are walking and cycling to get around. CRP have been working with King’s College London to improve the Clean Air Route Finder to make it even more useful for active travel, while reducing your exposure to air pollution. Now live, the tool is layered to display:
- Clean Air Walking Routes (Wellbeing Walks) showing alternative routes between transport hubs and key pedestrian destinations that we have identified with participating partners. These routes have air pollutant concentrations 30-60% lower than the usual, more heavily trafficked options.
- Cycling Times to central London’s Rail Stations (Stations) showing users how far they can cycle from each station in 2- and 5-minute intervals
- TfL’s Cycleways (Cycle Routes) showing a single network cycle (formerly known as Superhighways and Quietways) that links communities, businesses and destinations across the city
- Walking Tube routes showing walking routes between select stations across central London.
We are continuing to refine our upgrades and will be releasing more useful features over the coming weeks. For more information, please contact CRP Project Manager Sefinat Otaru, firstname.lastname@example.org
