We imagine the historic heart or core of the City will remain largely as it is today. Obsolete buildings will be gradually redeveloped. The City Core will be pedestrianised and there will be major changes in the transport infrastructure and in the uses of existing buildings. Demand for retail and residential will increase significantly, particularly on the river frontage, and on main streets.
We imagine a broad and treelined Riverside walk and cycle route linked to the heart of the City with landscaped, single surface streets shared by pedestrians, cycles and street cafes during the day. Service vehicles will be limited to operating at night. Radial primary vehicle routes will connect the major commuter stations around the perimeter of the City to the City Core with safe cycle routes, guide ways for electric and mass transit vehicles and with landscaped strips to create green fingers in the heart of the City.
