Walking schemes

Improving the pedestrian experience can increase economic activity and help regenerate areas as well as improving road safety. Our integrated design approach means that our walking schemes address the issues that concern pedestrians which include not just road safety but lighting and reducing their fear of crime.

Our designs to improve the pedestrian environment have made a significant contribution to reducing road accidents as well as making streets more attractive and accessible. Last year, with Southwark Council, Project Centre won the road safety award at the National Transport Awards the walking and public realm award at the London Transport Awards and the Living Streets award at the British Parking Awards for our streetscape improvements to the Walworth Road.

We work on many smaller scale projects including walking and non-motorised user audits, guard rail risk assessments and wayfaring signage to encourage walking.

Our team has a wide experience of helping private and public sector clients make sure that they comply with their responsibilities under the Disability Discrimination Act (DDA) and have produced high quality design guides for a number of local authorities to ensure that their staff adhere to best practice when designing streetscape improvements.
