Milan Announces Ambitious Scheme to Reduce Car Use after Lockdown

Milan is to introduce one of Europe’s most ambitious schemes reallocating street space from cars to cycling and walking, in response to the coronavirus crisis. The northern Italian city and surrounding Lombardy region are among Europe’s most polluted, and have also been especially hard hit by the COVID-19 outbreak. Under the nationwide lockdown, motor traffic congestion has dropped by 30-75 per cent, and air pollution with it. City officials hope to fend off a resurgence in car use as residents return to work looking to avoid busy public transport. The city has announced that 35 km of streets will be transformed over the summer, with a rapid, experimental citywide expansion of cycling and walking space.
