Crossing the Street

Tuesday 12 March 2019 (All day)
The Gallery, 70 Cowcross Street, London EC1M 6EJ

Half Day conference organised by London Living Streets and the Urban Design Group focusing on newly developed and evolving techniques to give greater priority to active travellers when crossing streets.

Designers and Engineers will obtain a better understanding of the needs of different types of people when using a crossing and the limitations to their ability and how to cater for them. They will also learn about the range of best practice and new techniques that can enable a Council to discharge its statutory duties, including the Equality Act Public Sector Equality Duty, as well as the common law duty of care owed by highway authorities to all highway users.

Campaigners will learn about latest innovations and best practice that should be a feature of the streets where they live.
