Haringey Council has been recognised as London’s most improved transport borough of the year.

Last week, the council’s transport team picked up the Most Improved Transport Borough of the Year Award at the London Transport Awards of the national trade magazine, Transport Times.

Cllr Nilgun Canver, cabinet cember for the environment, said: “ It is great to get this recognition.

“We are striving to reduce pollution and help keep people fit and safe and have tried to make it possible for residents to ditch the car at certain times and use public transport, cycle or walk safely to their destination.”
