Will Southwark Council deliver #ClimateSafeStreets?

2022-2026 is a vital stage in London’s zero-carbon journey. Motor vehicles are the largest and most stubborn source of London’s emissions, and borough councils control 95% of the city’s roads. We need all our councils to act in the next four years and be bold – or it’ll be too late to get to zero carbon roads by 2030. That’s what’s needed for London and Southwark to do their bit.

That’s why we developed specific, personalised asks for each London borough council in the 2022 council elections to cut road transport emissions fast and enable lots more walking, cycling and wheeling.

The floods in London we've seen in recent summers are a stark reminder that climate change is already with us. Our response must include an increase in active travel and a reduction in road traffic miles. Climate Safe Streets lead to more vibrant neighbourhoods, lower air pollution and noise, as well as more walking and cycling. That’s got to be a good thing.
