I just got this response to my email asking for time extension etc for Accessible Streets.

 What I read in this letter is that disabled pedestrians will be adversely impacted but we don't care. We put consultation documents out in accessible formats (a Government standard approach you will know), we are going to do a disability assessment later, and anyway 15km hour on a footpath is an improvement.
