12 miles of roads to close for London Car-Free Day

The Mayor of London has launched plans for this year’s Car Free Day event, which will see 12 miles of roads close in Central London.

Car Free Day 2019 will see 12 miles of roads closed in Central London while 18 boroughs will run their own events

Taking place on Sunday 22 September, the 2019 event marks the biggest yet and will help encourage Londoners to cycle, walk and use public transport to help improve air pollution and reduce car emissions.

Streets closed include Tower Bridge (closed to all traffic), London Bridge (buses only) and much of the City of London. A total of 18 boroughs are also organising events including working with residents to create local ‘Play Streets’ – safe spaces where children can play and communities get together.

The event forms the latest work to help meet the Mayor’s target of 80% of all journeys to be taken via sustainable modes of transport by 2041, compared to 63% today.
