Increasing levels of walking and cycling is key to reducing congestion and delivering economic prosperity by improving transport efficiency and reliability. The development of public space that enables active travel also offers real value for money by reducing the need for expensive investment in more road capacity.
Often short journeys that are undertaken by private motor vehicles could, with low cost improvements in facilities, be easily undertaken on foot or by bicycle.
Safer and more attractive streets that address the balance between motorists and other users are fundamental to encouraging more people to travel on foot or by bike, and to improving the quality of life in rural villages, towns and cities. We can advise, procure and produce public realm designs that will assist in creating community-based travel solutions. By careful introduction of traffic calming on existing roads and linkage of desire lines parents and children can be safely accommodated on our road network.
