Caroline and a team from City Hall went on a long walk on Tuesday 3rd August with Sustrans officers Carl and Matt. The fact finding walk is part of Caroline’s investigation into making walking easier and safer in London. The report will look at what the Mayor is doing to make walking safer in London and suggest things he can do in the short, medium and longer term to encourage more Londoners to walk around our great capital city.
Sustrans is a UK charity set-up to identify practical ways for people to travel in a more sustainable and healthy way. The visit was an opportunity to look at two programmes delivered by Sustrans GOAL (Greenways for the Olympics and London) - a broad programme of work including the development of an extensive network of London Greenways, the National Cycle Network and a network of walking and cycling routes around the Olympic park, and Connect2, a UK-wide programme to develop 79 cycling and walking routes by 2013.
