…to civilised space

Slower, safer streets.

Streets can be revived.  Villages can recover their identity. Neighbourhoods can be reconnected.  Hamilton-Baillie Associates have researched and developed design principles and practical measures to reduce the dominance of traffic.

Street designs and village centres that change drivers’ expectations. Places that foster civility and communication between drivers and other street users. Streets that engender human responses – where pedestrians can cross a street confident that drivers won’t ignore them. Above all, streets where traffic speeds are slow enough to allow such confidence to develop.
