London is Keeping Pace with Car-Free Traffic

London bridgeGREAT NEWS IN A NUTSHELL!!!

BRAVO LONDON!  I love London and I am jazzed to share this big news from The Guardian!

In one of the biggest car-free initiatives of any city in the world, the capital’s mayor announced on Friday that main streets between  London Bridge and Shoreditch, Euston and Waterloo, and Old Street and Holborn, will be limited to buses, pedestrians and cyclists.

Officials said they were working with boroughs to implement similar restrictions on the minor roads they manage within the area. Cars and lorries may also be banned from Waterloo Bridge and London Bridge.

Experts say it is crucial to encourage walking and cycling as people return to work because physical distancing is impossible on crowded transport and a surge in car use would cause gridlock and an increase in air pollution.

Please share the great news!
