Pedestrianise the University - Tyndall Avenue
The Dutch originally introduced the idea of taking away all road furniture, so that cars/buses/pedestrians/cyclists all share the same space, and interact mainly by eye contact, to make a safer thoroughfare for all.
This has now been taken up in many other places, for example the main road outside Imperial College South Kensington campus.
Tyndally avenue and the top half of Woodland Rd would be ideal to transform in this way - there is always a huge throughput of mainly student pedestrian traffic here, squeezed onto inadequately narrow pavements because of the space given over to cars and a bus route. There is also an alternative route for the latter on St Michael's Park if required
Why the contribution is important
To make the space in the main University precinct far more friendly to the majority of people who use it, and create a space that give a very positive vibe about the University, right at its heart.
