DIY Streets in London

Londeners are taking to the streets – literally – to transform streets at the individual level to walkable, bikeable, livable places. The effort is being lead by a nonprofit group in the UK called Sustrans, which is seeking to increase access to public spaces (not increase mobility per say), reduce the impacts of transportation, and generally make neighborhood and city streets more enjoyable places for people.

It is no secret that reducing speeds and opening up places throughout cities to pedestrians helps improve the general atmosphere, lifestyle, and economy in those places, so it is interesting to hear about it happening at the level of the individual street. The Sustrans group hopes to expand this to a larger scale with coming projects. Learn more in the video below via Streetfilms.
