The focus of this project has been the development of design proposals for an historic street which runs through the market town of Bruton in Somerset.
Working with the King's School and the Town Council, the team has analysed how people are currently using the street and some of the challenges. One of the key issues is the inappropriate speed of traffic which makes crossing for pupils and along local routes feel unsafe.
Given the historic nature of the street, conventional traffic calming measures wouldn't be appropriate. Therefore, the team is developing designs which draw on the historic character to create an instinctively low speed environment.
