Calls to Cut the Clutter on Pavements to Inspire People to Walk More
Living Streets, the UK charity for everyday walking is calling for action to cut pavement clutter, slow traffic speeds and make crossings safer so that more people can enjoy walking.
The call comes after new data from the Department for Transport reveals 74% of people would be encouraged to walk more if pavements were clean, uncluttered and well-lit.
Respondents said that well-maintained pavements 74%, safer roads 45%, safer crossing points 44% and direct walking routes 43% would encourage them to walk more.
