Amazing news from @willnorman this morning on the success of School Streets.

Air pollution down, play time up!

We’re proud to have supported 153 School Streets in more than half of the boroughs in London so far, via the #healthystreets officer programme, funded by @TfL. Image
Waiting at the school gates is now pollution free at Bevington primary #SchoolStreet in @RBKC.

This is just one #SchoolStreet our #HealthyStreetsOfficers have helped to organise with @TfL. @BevingtonRBKC Image
And is that the sound of Birdsong at Camelot Primary in Peckham?

This was a really important scheme which takes rat-running traffic off small residential streets. Better air quality, safer streets for children and pedestrian and cyclists. It’s always good to listen but as councillors we need to do the right thing too.
So disappointed to see loud and angry people protesting on behalf of drivers but not speaking up for the majority who do not drive, who walk and cycle and scoot around unsafe streets.
I am also, to choose my words carefully, really extremely disappointed and surprised to see Labour councillors opposing active travel, improved safety and clean air in this way. Sincerely hope that they now plan to discuss benefits with residents and show some bravery.
