According to the latest medical advice, a person who is active every day is less likely to suffer from heart disease, depression and many other debilitating or harmful illnesses. Walking and cycling is the easiest way to lead a more active lifestyle and contributes to the Mayor’s target to ensure all Londoners do at least 20 minutes of activity daily by 2041, and also helps to meet the pressing need to improve the quality of London’s air.

Poor air quality affects the health of everyone and Brent Council is committed to taking action to meet targets to reduce air pollution in the borough. In response to this clear evidence, TfL has adopted the Healthy Streets Approach to managing London’s transport network. This aims to improve air quality, reduce the dominance of motorised traffic and make London a greener, healthier and more pleasant place to live. It does so by prioritising evidence-based measures which would encourage people to walk, cycle or use public transport.
