Our current plans are focused on London’s parks and concerns motor traffic using roads inside parks as cut-throughs to avoid parallel main roads.
London’s parks, all parks, should be for people and nature, not motor traffic – the more motor traffic there is in any park, the less it’s a place to relax, stroll, cycle and rest, and the more the park, it’s nature and park users are impacted by air pollution, noise and other losses of the amenity.
Some motor traffic journeys to and from parks are necessary – for deliveries, for those with disabilities, and for other reasons. However, parks should not be used as a replacement for main roads – they shouldn’t be through routes that drivers take just to cut a few minutes off their commute. For this reason, this group at the outset is calling for all through motor traffic to be eliminated from London’s parks, and for now, specifically The Regent’s Park.
