Healthy Streets Everyday
Number of Project Partners: 19
Lead Borough: London Borough of Islington
As part of Healthy Streets Everyday, Cross River Partnership is proactively working with a range of partners (see below) to make lasting and transformative change to streets throughout London. The programme is helping to aid Londons’ COVID response by enabling walking and cycling through initiatives such as school streets and car-free zones, both of which align with TfL’s Streetspace programme.
For example, our ‘School Streets Hotline’ has been providing partners with information and guidance on implementing school streets, whilst our upcoming programme of webinars aims to inform the wider community on topics such as the benefits of active travel and how journey planning tools, such as CRP’s Clean Air Route Finder, can be used to avoid pollution and aid social distancing.
Creating streets that are pleasant, safe places for all Londoners’ to enjoy has become more important than ever, and these are just some of the initiatives that the Healthy Streets Everyday project is delivering as part of the following six key workstreams:
- Streetscape improvements
- New traffic regulations to make streets more pedestrian-friendly
- Car-free behaviour
- Guidance on how to create Healthy Streets Everyday
- Evaluation and monitoring of project interventions
