The Transport Agency is supporting the delivery of a number of live case study projects.
The showcases provided in this guide are completed projects from around the country that were undertaken prior to the Innovating Streets for People programme.
A lot was achieved and learned through the hard work of teams at councils and the support of local politicians and senior managers. Innovating Streets for People has taken the learnings and used them to inform this guide. For projects going forward, the Transport Agency has sought to partner with councils to help them through the planning, delivery and monitoring of Innovating Street projects, so that we can make it faster and easier to deliver these projects.
Councils have put forward projects by agreeing to be a formal case study. The Transport Agency will work through these projects, share the results through this website, and update the guidance with new knowledge and helpful tips.
In addition to the completed case studies, new ones being progressed currently are listed below.
If you would like to submit a project for consideration as a case study, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
