City of London pledges to keep Square Mile pavements accessible for all

15 October 2021/Categories: CILT, Industry News, Transport Planning


The City of London Corporation has committed itself to the Equal Pavements Pledge by Transport for All.

 

Transport for All is a pan-impairment organisation which works to ensure all disabled and older people have the right to travel with freedom and independence. 

 

They are calling on local and transport authorities across the UK to join the pledge.

 

The Equal Pavements Pledge consists of seven commitments, which are in line with the City Corporation’s Transport Strategy and approach to design, management and maintenance of pavements and streets. 

 

The commitments are to listen and act, to keep it clear, to cut the clutter, to mind the trash, to drop the kerbs, to protect Blue Badge Bays and to work with disabled experts.

 

Chairman of the City of London Corporation’s Streets and Walkways Sub-Committee, Graham Packham, said: “We are absolutely committed to providing safe, accessible streets and walkways for City residents, workers and visitors, so we are pleased to support Transport for All’s Equal Pavements Pledge.

 

“We will ensure inclusivity on pavements across the Square Mile by continuing to meet the seven commitments within the pledge.”
