Sustrans Helps Reclaim Community Streets In The UK
A group aims to make neighborhood roads safer and more enjoyable for members of the community.
The “DIY Streets” program in the UK, created by the Sustrans organization, aims to make neighborhood streets safer and more enjoyable for members of the community.
…the program brings neighbors together to help them redesign their streets in a way that puts people, safety, and streetlife first. So far, individual streets have benefited from DIY redesigns in 11 communities in England and Wales. Recently Streetfilms got a walk through of one successful DIY project — on Clapton Terrace in London. With the people who made it happen as our guides, we saw how planners and neighbors collaborated to transform a place where speeding used to rule into a local street with calm traffic and safe space to socialize.
