The pandemic has seen our streets changed more drastically than ever before, with an acceleration of pedestrian and cycling initiatives and a key focus on active travel. What is the legacy of the temporary streets improvements we’ve seen implemented in the past year? What has been the impact of the Mayor’s Streetscape programme one year on? And, with the 15-minute city model gaining momentum, how has it been interpreted in transport strategies across the capital?
