Since this letter was published, St Peter's consultation ended (11 November) and Canonbury East started (ending 30 November) - so get your feedback hat on for Canonbury East!
St Peter's People Friendly Streets policy has been a huge success, it provides a snap shot of how we can change Islington for the better.
Some key statistics:
- traffic down 56% in the area, speeding down 78%, cycling up 72%
- boundary roads traffic down 1% (despite the continued road works and road closures all over Islington by the G network fibre changes)
- no impact on emergency service response times
We might not all have a people friendly street programme yet but we know they are coming and we can now see proof that they are a huge success. Let's make sure we support our neighbours to maintain theirs so that they can support the rest of the Borough in getting theirs. I encourage everyone who wants less traffic on our streets, better air quality and a healthier population to give the St Peter’s consultation your full support - I know I will.
