This project developed a design concept that would maintain the road’s arterial function, yet would significantly improve conditions for pedestrians, cyclists and residents. The design narrows the road, removes a significant amount of on-street parking, and provides cycle lanes, wide footpaths and numerous street trees. Three central islands with trees at significant locations make it easier for pedestrians to cross the road. Traffic speeds are expected to reduce as the trees grow, improving conditions for non-motorised road users.
