Campaigners have called for “mini Holland” walking and cycling schemes to be introduced in towns across Britain after the first London pilot scheme produced dramatic results.

London’s pioneering “mini Holland” low traffic neighbourhood is “synonymous with the changes that need to happen around the world”, according to the capital’s walking and cycling commissioner.

This is from 2016 so it's not news.

True, the article may be old news, so here is an article celebrating the success of the same location after the last 10 years.

Clyde Loakes, the councillor who led the introduction of the schemes, faced numerous threats to his safety. “There were some pretty hairy interviews with the police about some of the stuff that was coming my way,” he recalled.

Freaking heck. Let me guess, they were all drivers getting butthurt.

Walthamstow isn't too far from my area, I'd love to see it expand here. I'm so sick of the Chelsea tractors.
