Coronavirus and remaking streets

Lockdowns as a result of coronavirus are starting to be eased across the world. With this easing, we are seeing temporary changes being made to street layouts, largely to encourage cycling so that people don’t have to use public transport. 

We want to ensure that any temporary changes to our streets that may appear across England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales allow blind and partially sighted people and those with other disabilities to still safely get around and to cross the roads using pedestrian crossing facilities. Please write to your local councillor to ask that they make sure any changes that happen locally don’t affect people's ability to get out and about.
