Streetspace is a London-wide scheme where 20 boroughs are funded and supported by Transport for London (TfL) to create more space for people to safely walk or cycle in response to the Covid-19 pandemic.
Four different types of changes have been made:
- low traffic streets and low traffic neighbourhoods (LTN)
- footway expansion
- speed awareness
- cycling facilities
At the low traffic streets / low traffic neighbourhoods, all streets remain open on either side of the partial closures, and are fully open for walking, cycling and other healthy and active journeys. Visitors, deliveries, emergency services and continue to have access to premises.
Temporary and permanent changes
Temporary changes are being introduced and will last for up to 18 months.
As we develop options for permanent changes we will share them and invite comment.
Get involved in designing Streetspace
We did not consult formally before introducing measures because we were required as a matter of urgency by central government and TfL to reallocate space on the highway to people walking, cycling, and using other alternatives to the car.
We have used feedback from the public over previous years to decide which streets would benefit most from reduced traffic.
Residents have given feedback since the measures were put in place telling us that their streets are now cleaner, safer and quieter. We’ve also received lots of input about how the schemes could be improved or changed.
We continue to welcome feedback and encourage you to have your say using our interactive map.
If you wish to comment on the Crystal Palace and South Norwood Temporary Low Traffic Neighbourhood, please give feedback as part of the consultation.
