How to make Sundays special

  • 1 min read
News announced this week that Singapore, one of the busiest cities in the world to negotiate if you are a pedestrian, cyclist or scooter rider will be going car free on Sundays. The first car free Sunday is on February 28 when the city will be awash with open air markets, entertainers, street aerobics, bike hire services and walking tours. Surely the perfect way to spend a Sunday? Boris Johnson, the London mayor seems to agree. In late 2014 he suggested the scheme should be implemented to parts of Central London, amid warnings that Britain's roads will be jammed with an extra seven million drivers within 20 years. At the beginning of this year London breached the pollution limits set by the EU for the whole of 2016 in just 8 days, the fifth year in a row that city has significantly overshot the set limits. CAN CAR FREE SUNDAYS HAPPEN IN THE UK? Bristol Council have managed to do so for the last 3 years, hosting "Make Sunday Special" days throughout the year. Like the day in Singapore the team at Bristol invite street entertainers, market stall holders, children's entertainers and many more to take over the city centre. https://youtu.be/6P_kOM4a40I Other cities across the world including Paris regularly host car free Sundays. Do you think London and other big UK cities should do the same? Let us know in the comments below.
