3985Walking to Birmingham
- Dec 1, 2001Interesting article on the revitalization of Birmingham:
"People on low incomes and those in urban areas walk the most. They also encounter the worst environments. This is starkly illustrated by the fact that children from the poorest households are over four times more likely to be killed as pedestrians than those from the richest ones. The poor state of many streets and public spaces adds to the pressure on economically mobile households to leave run-down city neighbourhoods for cleaner, safer suburbs or the countryside beyond."
