Mary Creagh, Chief Executive, Living Streets said:
“It’s wonderful to see so many people using walking to stay fit, but enjoying a stroll down your street is off limits to millions of people because local pavements are not fit for purpose.
“Investing in clutter free pavements and safer crossings would inspire people to walk more – tackling our triple epidemics of inactivity, air pollution and isolation.”
The National Travel Attitudes Study (NTAS) is an online and telephone survey which covers responses from individuals aged 16 and over in England. The survey was conducted in January and February 2021. In total, 2,554 people completed the survey.
