A shift in our thinking and travel habits to more sustainable options will have hugely positive and far-reaching benefits for each of us, and the community as a whole. Not only will it help to reduce congestion on the roads, making everyone’s travel times quicker, but walking and cycling improves physical and mental health, increasing fitness and overall wellbeing. As a result, less pollution will benefit everyone’s health and help tackle climate change. The Garden Town will prioritise streets for people of all needs and abilities, rather than roads for cars.
New technologies, development and collaboration can help ensure that everyone in Harlow is able to make everyday journeys in a healthier, more pleasant way without having to rely on the car. The Garden Town will be pioneering in its approach; offering an active, fun and sociable travel experience for all.
