Ken Livingstone

London mayor Ken Livingstone has taken over a scheme for the partial pedestrianisation of Trafalgar and Parliament Squares, Whitehall and Old Palace Yard in central London from Westminster Council.

Livingstone's transport executive Transport for London is to start on work later this year, closing the north side of Trafalgar Square to traffic and improving pedestrian access at a cost of £23M. It is estimated the scheme will increase traffic congestion in central London by 3-5 per cent.
