The new visualisations show how a new people orientated, rather than traffic dominated, environment, could be created.  The concept demonstrates the opportunity to create a series of linked public spaces, set within an attractive new green setting – more trees, and planting that would provide softening at ground level.   It demonstrates that the Cenotaph, could sit within its own identifiable space without moving from its current location, whilst enjoying greater public access, through being at a point between new pedestrian crossing points.

The images also show the benefits to pedestrians, bus users, and cyclists, in having an environment that is more special to them, through being of a more human scale and, less interrupted by vehicular movement.  Improvement of the quality of experience for the bus traveller is seen as crucial to attracting greater use of public transport, and having a high quality environment where people access buses is felt particularly important.  It is also recognised that, in further enhancing the City’s most central of public spaces, it will become more attractive still to local people and visitors alike.’

Remember – these are early visualisations and as with the rest of the City Centre layout debate, no decisions have been made.   We’re trying something new with this debate of sharing early ideas and images with you in order to hear your ideas and develop a joint approach.
