Before you get going here
are a few tips to ensure that your walk is as safe and easy as possible:
- Know where you
are going: plan your journey visiting our Interactive map.

to reach your destination comfortably.

shoes, preferably ones with thick flexible soles that cushion and support your
- Walk facing
oncoming traffic if there is no footway.
- At night, wear
clothing which is bright or has reflective strips.
- Whenever possible
cross using pedestrian crossings. Otherwise find a safe place to cross where
you have a clear view of the road in both directions.

remember to stop, look, listen – especially as cyclists approach silently.

walking on your own make sure someone knows where you are going and when you
expect to arrive.
