Sustrans introduced a brand new ‘street kit’ as a way of trialling temporary public parks and social spaces in London.
Busy streets and parking spaces can transformed into places for cyclists and pedestrians by using this modular temporary piece of street furniture system, reclaiming space from motor vehicles.
The event links to PARKing day, which aims to get citizens to rethink the way streets are used and promote discussion around the need for broad based changes to urban infrastructure as well as being part of the celebrations to commemorate 20 years of the National Cycle Network.
Matt Winfield, deputy director Sustrans London, said: “Streets make up 80% of the accessible open space in our towns and cities and offer huge potential as a community resource, as a place to meet our neighbours, and to socialise and play.
“The street kit is inspired by the form of a bike chain and can bend to suit any space.”
Our car bike ports formed part of the temporary install, we were very pleased to be involved, keep up the good work Sustrans.
