Understanding: Access & Movement

about 5 years ago

A KEY FACT - walking and cycling to local shops is good for business and good for the local economy.

Motorised vehicles form a dominant characteristic in many town centre’s today. However, the most vital town centres reconcile the dominance of the vehicle by prioritising pedestrians, cyclists and modes of public transport. By emphasising walking, cycling and public transport as a viable mode of transportation with a strong impact of health is leading towards a more sustainable town centre. Key points to consider when evaluating and strategising ‘Access and Movement’ are as follows
– Street Hierarchy and Traffic Volume
– Access and Parking
– Pedestrian and Cycle Network
– Public Transport Network
