TRAVELLERS NEED A CONTINUOUS ROAD. MOTORISTS HAVE A CONTINUOUS CARRIAGEWAY. PEDESTRIANS NEED CONTINUOUS FOOTPATHS

Few people will doubt the truth of the statement made in the title of this paper. Footpaths still surround each block but seldom provide an uninterrupted crossing from one side to the other, so that the continuity of the footpaths is limited to the circumference of each block. In general, that is still the situation, but there are now some exceptions. One of these examples is the new town Stevenage. The layout of this town and the way in which the traffic engineering has been carried out are outlined. It is stated that the creation of continuous paths for pedestrians is in the best interests of all forms of traffic. /TRRL/
