This paper reports on analysis of impacts of active travel interventions in Outer London between 2016-19. We find larger effects (decreased car ownership and use, increased active travel) in intervention areas where Low Traffic Neighbourhoods (LTNs) were introduced. Decreased car ownership and use is only found in such areas. Sample size for LTN areas is small and hence uncertainty about effect magnitude is large, but effect direction is consistent. This suggests that to reduce car use as well as increase active travel, LTNs are an important part of the intervention toolbox.
The places where we live are important to our health and wellbeing. Changing how road space is used has an important part to play in people’s quality of life.
This strategy contains current initiatives and future actions to help fulfil the Scottish Government vision for the retail sector in a fair, sustainable way.
