What do we mean by walkability? What makes a neighbourhood walkable and why does it matter? These are questions put to Tim Pharoah, a transport researcher who has been championing mobility on foot for more than 40 years. Recorded on a walk through the streets between Waterloo and London Bridge railway stations, part of London where Tim once lived.
Bankside, The Cut and Waterloo Quarter, as this part of London in 2015 is now known, is a hive of construction and a tourist attraction to boot. Few places offer quiet with Red Cross Gardens as a welcome exception. The recording opens with Tim telling us about his chief concern of traffic speed and how to calm it. 28’53” 13.5MB
