Slow the Flow: Slow down traffic by employing calming measures
The provision of landscaping and street furniture creates the perception of a narrowed road for drivers, encouraging them to drive slower.
The provision of rumble strips before and after a raised table pedestrian crossing encourages drivers to slow down and allow pedestrians to cross.
This development utilises bollards and raised tactile surfaces to create a safe crossing points for pedestrians. These crossing points link with neighbouring sites to create a promenade with the appearance of pedestrian priority.
Mid-strip planting and raised crossing tables contribute to traffic calming on this street.
Ensure that mid-strip planting is maintained and low in height to ensure sightlines.
