What is Quieter neighbourhoods?
Quieter neighbourhoods is a scheme to introduce traffic calming measures such as blocking one end of a street or introducing speed limits. It is focused around residential streets that are often used as ‘rat runs’. The aim is to improve the safety and quality of life of the residents of targeted streets and make it much safer for children.
While quieter neighbourhoods is not predominantly a cycling campaign it will help to improve safer for all vulnerable road users (pedestrian, cyclists, children etc).
As both local residents and cyclists we are in favour of the Quieter neighbourhoods scheme.
