I recently came across a wonderful video that I wanted to share. In 2011, the City of Poynton, UK decided to rethink the way that they were dealing with a noisy, unsafe and heavily congested area of travel. This 15 minute video tells the story of what traffic and the city was like beforehand and how it has changed with the addition of new streetscape redesign. Certainly, it is possible to both improve traffic and make a surrounding area more welcoming for pedestrians and businesses to operate.
As we consider many of Cambridge's more complex intersections, I believe it is important to include new and effective strategies like the one employed by the City of Poynton, UK.
