DIY Sustrans on our High Street

An impressive turnout for this event, forming part of the consultation process Sustrans preparing and now presenting their designs for Kings Heath High Street to Birmingham City Council.

A longer clip below, discussion in full.  I felt discussion moved at times from issues of safety for the most vulnerable High Street users (old and young) to graffiti, parking and seating - important issues, yes, but whatever the design has to deliver, it has to make things safer, and I think that has to be a priority.  To make things safer the design is only a small part - There's still loads to do to make sure improvements proposed happen, and more action to make all our roads safer.
