London Cycling Campaign released details this week of the first London Boroughs Healthy Streets Scorecard report in which Havering is ranked last.
Our comment on this as Havering Cyclists is that against a backdrop here in Havering of chronic traffic congestion, vehicle pollution and rising obesity levels, we desperately need to make cycling safer and more appealing so as to enable those residents who are able and willing, to leave their cars at home and use their bikes instead.
We have been patiently waiting for some of the good things promised for cyclists in the Mayor’s Transport Strategy but when we look at the great things being done in other boroughs it seems that Havering is being completely left behind.
The content of this report only goes to reinforce our view that Havering council has to realise that its residents want and deserve better cycling and walking facilities to give them real choices about how they make their journeys.
