Transport Xtra: Sustrans unveils live map of temporary cycle lanes
Walking and cycling charity Sustrans has created a live online map for people to share their views on emergency measures that have been put in place to help them walk and cycle safely during lockdown and beyond.
This charity hopes the online map will help councils assess the impact of street changes made to support safe physical distancing.
Residents across the UK can use the portal to share their views on temporary cycle lanes, widened pavements and other measures that have been implemented in their local area to allow for physical distancing, through a live online map.
The map-based tool was created by the Sustrans, in order to help local authorities gather residents’ feedback and assess the impact that measures to create additional space for safe walking and cycling have had during the COVID-19 lockdown.
Residents can use the map to search for schemes in their local area, and complete a short form expressing their views on the street changes. Once data is gathered, an automated ‘dashboard’ report can be sent to the relevant local authority.
