dc.description.abstract"We are, at varies times, pedestrians and motorists, shoppers and commuters, public transit passengers and parents concerned for the safety of our children. Most of us live in cities and want our neighbourhoods to be attractive, tidy and secure." This dissertation looks at measures we can take to restrain traffic movements in our cities as a positive rather than a negative measure. Measures available are designed to achieve a better balance of the street as a land use within our urban areas. Introducing traffic restraint measures that enhance the quality of residential life, improve pedestrian safety and reinforce the sense of identity of people with their neighbourhoods, are their most important role. "A good residential street is one that restricts rather than facilitates the flow of traffic; a theory that up until recently has run counter to conventional wisdom." This major new trend in urban renewal developments and transportation planning in residential neighbourhoods. ...."Will create a more equal balance among all users of the streets by slowing traffic and reducing the number of cars. Children will play safely, noise and air pollution will decrease, pedestrian and bicycle use will be encouraged, and the street as an element of the social structure of the neighbourhood will become more important” Thus the street will he looked upon in terms of its multiple-use function. It will be a place for residential access and recreation; a social, usable space. A space within a space. A spatial linkage to other open spaces.en
