Further to your work for an event in central London, how will you and Transport for London (TfL) support Car Free Day activity within London boroughs with the £1 million funding allocated in the 2019-20 budget?

Car Free Day and London boroughs

Answered By: 
The Mayor

As outlined in Mayor's Question 2019/6079, I want a major event which opens up our streets so that Londoners of all ages, backgrounds and abilities can enjoy walking, cycling and being active in a safe, traffic-free and unpolluted environment.

Car Free Day will showcase culture, sport, and healthy fun activities in a significant area of central London, enabling people to see parts of the city that are often dominated by traffic, from a different perspective. We will also be working with boroughs and community organisations to activate other neighbourhoods across the city.
