    What is Vision Zero?

    Major cities around the world are taking a stand to end the toll of deaths and injury seen on their roads and transport networks by committing to Vision Zero. London is at the forefront of this approach and the Mayor's Transport Strategysets out the goal that, by 2041, all deaths and serious injuries will be eliminated from London's transport network. 

    While the Vision Zero strategy is being set by The Mayor of London, Transport for London and the Metropolitan Police, the responsibility for its success is shared by all, including those who have a role in designing, building, operating and managing our transport network as well as everyone that uses it. 

    We are working closely with the Mayor of London, London boroughs, the police and other partners to eradicate deaths and serious injuries from our roads and make London a safer, healthier and greener place. We place Vision Zero ambitions at the heart of everything we do. 

    What are Healthy Streets?

    Helping more people to walk, cycle and use public transport is at the heart of the Mayor’s vision to transform London’s streets and create a healthier, fairer and more sustainable city for everyone.  

    The Mayor’s Transport Strategy sets out how investing in our streets using the Healthy Streets approach can improve air quality, reduce congestion and help make London's diverse communities greener, healthier and more attractive places to live, work, play and do business.   

    London’s streets account for over 80% of its public space. Turning these streets into places where people want to walk, cycle and take public transport will help communities connect, while allowing Londoners to start enjoying their city again as we recover from the pandemic.  

    Creating streets for walking, cycling and public transport will also tackle pollution and congestion, and make it easier for people to build healthy activity into their daily lives.
