Elgin trials “people friendly” street designs
June 7 2011
These include a colourful stepping stone effect to guide children to and from a nearby school, creating green space through tree planting, rerouting paths to afford residents greater privacy and re-defining car parking to discourage speeding.
Alex Bottril, Sustrans’ street designer behind the project, says “So far the designs have all been on paper and models, but this chance to map them out on the street itself to help us see what designs works and what the reality of their design will mean for people traveling within the area, whether that is on foot, by bike or by car. This event will help finalise the designs for the neighbourhood.”
Sustrans are working alongside Elgin Community Council and the local community forum in the Moray Council project.
