Presentation by Rachel Aldred, University of Westminster

  • LTNs are 2.7 times more likely to be in the most deprived areas than non-LTNs (thus benefitting most those on low incomes and most exposed to poor air quality etc)

  • LTNs have led to an increase of 115% (more than doubled) in walking by those within the LTN

  • LTNs have led to a 20% increase in cycling by those within the LTNs.

  • Traffic reduced by 42% within LTNs on average and reduced by 6% on the borders of LTNs (refuting the displacement argument)

  • There was a 7% reduction in car ownership within LTNs.

  • There was an 85% reduction in pedestrian injuries

  • Road Traffic injuries halved compared to the rest of London.

  • There was a 10% reduction in in crime within LTNs compared to non-LTNs including an 18% reduction in crimes against the person.
