Campaign group looking to put a stop to Low Traffic Neighborouhood scheme

A Campaign group is calling on the Mayor to withdraw a recent TFL Low Traffic Publication.

They say its ‘not fit for purpose’.

In a letter sent this week the group Social and Environmental Justice challenged claims there is no robust evidence LTNs result in a significant increase in other alternatives like cycling or walking, or a reduction in car usage.

In London, Hackney has the highest coverage of LTN streets with 70%, with Bexley the worst at just 4%.

Stella Sawyer from SEJ spoke to Henry.

Prime Minister Rishi Sunak has ordered an independent review of Low Traffic Neighbourhoods with initial questionnaires having been sent out to councils. If you want to have your say, you can get in touch with your local council.
