Pedestrian movement is considered an important part of the

design process, accordingly pedestrian routes to POS, riverside

walk, Turnchapel and existing public transport nodes are easily

accessible by foot.

Cycle routes surrounding the site are at present limited. There

are no national routes to link into. As

a result cyclists will be expected to use the highway routes to

travel.

Vehicular movement is clear. The highways are car friendly as

a result of using the LPA’s highway design guide as a basis for

highway design.

Wherever desirable, the footpaths are detached from the

highway to promote more direct and convenient pedestrian

footpaths. Similarly, the highway has been adapted to be more

varied and irregular to promote a more organic street that

better responds to the enclosing built form.
