MORE than 2,000 people have given their views to a consultation aimed at improving safety on Bolton's streets.

The Safe Streets Save Lives campaign was first launched by Bolton Council in July, with a total of 2,260 people have contributed since then with ideas about how to support social distancing and encourage more people to walk and cycle safely.

As such, the council has now decided to reopen the consultation to allow people to both comment on new measures and on more long standing policies.

Speaking on the launch of the initial consultation, a council spokesman said: “We want to promote the safety of key workers and those returning to work as they travel about and improve the environment for residents on their local streets.”

“We have already started the process of implementing emergency measures such as the narrowing of Newport Street between the bus station and train station to provide wider pedestrian footpaths.”

The survey can be found on Bolton Council’s website.
