The Mayor

The Healthy Streets Approach puts people and their health at the centre of decision making and will be fundamental to the design of future schemes. This includes Cycle Superhighway 9 where the Approach has been applied.

All ten Healthy Streets Indicators contribute to making streets more welcoming and accessible for all to walk and to cycle.  TfL schemes aim to deliver improvements against all Healthy Streets Indicators and we will use the Healthy Streets Check for Designers to assess proposed schemes and demonstrate how they are delivering improvements compared with the existing conditions on street.
