The Bristol Arena is a landmark development for Bristol, due to be completed in late 2018. Located on Arena Island to the east of the main Temple Meads station, it is challenged in terms of pedestrian accessibility from the wider city. Whilst significant investment is being made in new infrastructure to improve access, Streets Reimagined were commissioned to review existing pedestrian wayfinding provision and to develop proposals to better facilitate access to the arena.
The team developed a pedestrian audit process which undertook street level analysis, considering a range for users. This led to the development of a pedestrian wayfinding strategy and a costed proposal for improvements.
