Improving transport in our towns and cities

Improving streets during the Covid-19 pandemic


Hackney Council

Hackney Council are focusing road improvement efforts on seven sites where residents are experiencing difficulties with social distancing during the Covid-19 pandemic. In these areas, footpaths will be widened with barriers and parking will be suspended to help people walk and shop safely. 

The council is also temporarily restricting parking on Broadway Market and closing it to through-traffic, to improve pedestrian safety in this high footfall area. The measures will make it easier for residents to maintain social distancing while walking for daily exercise or obtaining essential items, such as food and medicine. At each of the sites, the Council will ensure that deliveries to food retailers can continue as required.

The LGA Labour Group exists to fight the corner for Labour councillors at a national level, both within
the cross-party Local Government Association and with the Labour Party at Westminster. The Group provide a strong voice for Labour councillors and act as a platform for ideas and innovation for all those committed to an effective localist element to Labour politics and policies.
