Transport for All has today (22 January) released its 'Pave the Way' report. 

Pave The Way is the only independent and in-depth research into how disabled people have been impacted by Low Traffic Neighbourhoods, and the barriers to Active Travel.

It is the product of six months of in-depth research into the impacts of Low Traffic Neighbourhoods (LTNs) on disabled people, and includes a contribution from Living Streets.

Mary Creagh, Chief Executive, Living Streets comments: 

"Our streets should be safe, welcoming and accessible to everyone. LTNs restrict traffic, meaning quieter streets with more space for everyone to make their journeys. It’s encouraging to see participants reporting easier, more pleasant journeys, an increase in independence and a decrease in traffic danger.

“However, the report raises valid concerns around how people are informed and consulted on changes. The answer is clear - listening to disabled people should be the starting point to make streets safer, accessible and inclusive.”
