'Mini-Holland' schemes have proved their worth in outer London boroughs | Peter Walker
First formal study into their impact finds that boroughs with the schemes have boosted walking and cycling rates

The research found that after one year, people living in parts of such boroughs were, on average, walking and cycling for 41 minutes a week more than those living in comparable areas.
