Cities are closing streets to cars, opening them to walking + cycling to enable #SocialDistancingNow in our urban spaces. With thanks to @Lelievre_Adrien here is a massive list of them. Shamefully NONE in the UK @Heidi_LDN @willnorman @AndyBurnhamGM @GreenJennyJones 1/12
2/12 Bogota, Colombia has added 22km of pop up bike lanes to deal with #SocialDistancingNow #COVIDー19
3/12 Mexico City has added a 2km pop-up bike lanes to deal with #Social_Distancing #COVIDー19
4/12 Berlin is adding pop up bike lanes all over the place to deal with #Social_Distancing #COVIDー19
5/12 The City of Calgary, Canada, is taking lanes away from cars and giving them back to people to deal with #Social_Distancing #COVIDー19
6/12 Did I say Berlin already? Yes, more pop-up bike lanes there to help people deal with #Social_Distancing #COVIDー19
7/12 Denver - opening car lanes by turning them into pop-up bike and walk lanes as well, to help people deal with #Social_Distancing #COVIDー19
8/12 St Paul, Minnesota is also shutting lanes to car traffic, opening them to people on foot and on bikes
9/12 Boston: "re-purpose potions of the public way for the increased demand by pedestrians & cyclists who must socially distance when out" #Social_Distancing #COVIDー19
10/12 Stuttgart, closing roads to cars to enable safe outdoor walking, cycling too #SocialDistancingNow #COVIDー19
11/12 Winnipeg, Canada has also created four pop-up bike routes to enable safe biking and walking #Social_Distancing
12/End It is an absolute scandal that not a single UK town or city is on this list. We are forced to walk on tiny pavements with zero possibility of #Social_Distancing to go shopping or crammed into 'overcrowded' parks @Heidi_LDN @willnorman @AndyBurnhamGM @Lelievre_Adrien
13/ Oh, and Budapest: "temporary bicycle lanes provide residents with an alternative and safer way to travel during the coronavirus pandemic." koronavirus.budapest.hu/en/2020/04/06/…
