• Newham is asking for suggestions "for making our streets better for social distancing, walking and cycling" - https://www.newham.gov.uk/coronavirus-co­vid-19/c19-information-advice/5

    Due to the Covid-19 outbreak, current Government advice is that public transport should be avoided unless absolutely necessary, and with over 50% of Newham households not owning a car, we need to make sure that walking and cycling is a safe and attractive option.

    Newham also has the largest number of deaths attributable to poor air quality and encouraging more residents to walk and cycle, instead of private vehicles, will also help reduce air pollution.

    Make suggestions on the map for wider pavements, new or better crossing points, reducing speeds and traffic volumes, changes to cycle routes or any other changes to support with social distancing, walking and cycling.

    Unclear when the closing date for input is.
