We’ve partnered with the Alan Turing Institute who have developed an online tool, called AB Street, to help you plan where you might like to place measures, such as a modal filter or one way. The tool shows how access may change in the pilot area when such measures are in place.
Before using the AB Street tool watch a quick video on how to use it.
The tool works across the whole project area but has been split into two sections, Barton Hill & Redfield, and St George. Please click on the area that you're interested in.

Find out how interventions could impact on local roads
One method of designing a Liveable Neighbourhood is so that motor traffic can access the whole area and get to every point inside it. However, using measures such as modal filters, means motor traffic cannot pass through the area using local streets, and instead need to go around the edge on main roads.
Knowing where to place these measures on local streets is complex and can often be difficult for local communities, as they change how people access and move through an area, which is why we need your help as local experts.
This part of the process is like a logic puzzle, where the aim of the game is to use the fewest number of measures, while addressing all the through routes.
It is important to consider all the through routes together, as motor traffic could increase on nearby streets within the area, which would have a negative impact on others.
Here are four simple tips that will help you decide where you think the measures should be placed:
