More on Urban Space

One of the groups that was responsible for the bring urban planning back to being about people and accessibly is the Congress for the New Urbanism. Anyway, they have a whole section on auto-only roads that have been converted to multimodal roadways or complete roads. I highly suggest that you check out this section of their website. Anyway, I thought the following example was a great picture. The sides of the road (parking/very lcoal traffic/bike and people) are protected from the fast moving centre traffic. Also, the traffic in the centre is allowed to flow free without having to worry about all the uses that are taking place on the sides.
