LTNs: Modal filters

Modal filters (or 'point closures') are measures to restrict through-traffic. These facilitate safer streets for cycling and walking, as well as improving residential amenity.

Various types are shown see optional parameters.

The data shown here is the result of automated analysis of OpenStreetMap data.

This data should be considered beta level. We continue to refine the analysis to remove false-positives and to add additional types.

A maximum of 2,000 results are returned within the supplied bounding box.

Coverage is currently the UK and Ireland.

Example

Example which retrieves modal filters in an area of central Cambridge.
