Improvements that walking advocates tried to change for years are now happening over night – such as the automation of pedestrian 'beg-buttons' at traffic lights. The Covid-19 disruption is also a time when advocates and administrators in cities worldwide are working hard to reclaim street space for walking and cycling during the pandemic.
So the pandemic lays bare many issues of transport equity, with walking at the heart of many areas where we need to improve. Walk21 will continue to put pressure on these issues and lobby for improvements in walking infrastructure for the time during the Covid-19 pandemic and thereafter.
