Almost two-thirds of locals want a car-free day in Central London, a study has found.
A poll by RBS showed that 63% of Londoners support the scheme, which would follow in the footsteps of European cities like Paris which have adopted similar schemes.
RBS believes it would cause positive environmental changes.
“Such changes can make people see their city in a new light – no noise, no smog – and turn them against conventional forms of transport,” the study’s authors said.
And it wouldn’t mean that deliveries from firms like Amazon would be out, either. “Sweden has an established fleet of cargo bikes, though they are often less of a bike and more of a pedal-powered or electrically assisted four-wheel cart with a trailer,” the authors said.
“Several companies offer milk float-like electric vans, which are increasingly being used in big cities including London.”
