Shared Space Strategy

As part of our vision to encourage ‘walking within the walls’, we have prepared a revised transport strategy and conceptual images for how the one way system in Winchester could be transformed into a shared space. Our idea is to create a series of one way 20mph loops allowing access to residential streets. Buses retain access to the shared space whilst through traffic is moved to North Walls. This strategy balances improvements in east-west pedestrian access at key locations with vehicluar access for residents, buses and deliveries. An enlarged pedestrian priority is created. Ingeniously simple, even if we do say so ourselves!
