Staid, conservative, old London in England is up to some pretty progressive things these days. In fact, they downright put London in Canada to shame.

Their goal is to shell out the equivalent of about $1B of our dollars for walking and cycling initiatives on a huge scale over the next decade. 01

Also in England, recognizing that infrastructure needs/deserves to be prioritized for pedestrians and cyclists, another project has earmarked the equivalent of about $100M to ensure more direct routes to destinations within the nation’s communities for those demographics. 02

I’d like to know, when do we start to see pedestrian bridges over Commissioners Road here in the Forest City?

    Greetings from London (England). Yes, it is putting Paris to shame too. However, it is only applying to London, other counties in the UK are still in the 4×4 dark ages. However, the cycle paths some are good but some are bad.. so let’s hope the new Cycling Superhighway won’t be a cowboy job.
