Develop a set of computer-based tools to assist the design and reallocation of street space. This will provide a street layout design tool that incorporates basic rules and regulations on roadspace allocation and detailed and comprehensive information on aspects of street design. Good practice examples of complete design solutions in different countries will also be included.
The project develops a core streetscape reallocation design tool that forms a platform for links with other modules developed during the project that assist in the option generation, design and assessment processes. The core tool combines GIS and CAD functionality to assist in the drawing of streetscape allocation options. It also embodies a number of rules, based on spatial logic and traffic regulations, to prevent infeasible options being developed and to provide guidanceas to why the designis not practical. Tramsport for London will evaluate prototypes of the Software, as the work proceeds. As well as developing tools witha clear practical and commercial value, the intention is to advance academic understanding internationally, in the areas of streetspace allocation and stakeholder impacts, as well as to generate a wealth of valuable teaching materials.
