Newham is committed to not only just the Healthy School Streets programme but other initiatives to help towards London’s Net Zero Goals

Healthy Route Maps

We have mapped out direct, healthier, and safer routes to school.

These walking routes have been assessed using traffic and air pollution data, pedestrian counts and safer crossing points. By avoiding the high traffic streets, your children’s exposure to pollution can be reduced by around 50% and could reduce asthma complications.
