Mapping Walking Routes
This time we’re talking all about mapping walking routes. Back in the Autumn, Emma Griffin from the Footways project joined Laura for a stroll around Bow in East London. Footways is a network of quiet and interesting streets for walking in London, with the aim of getting people out on the pavements and walking for transport.
Their aim is to make the pedestrian network the top priority when it’s often the lowest.
