Week 4 saw the finalising of the design evaluation framework, based on Smarter Streets’ acronym POINT, standing for Pedestrian Motivation, Optimisation of Space, Incentivise Business Development, New Unique Concepts, Traffic Calming. The evaluation framework was then used to select the parts of the design that were most fulfilling the project objectives, allowing the team to combine these in a final proposal.

The final design was fully costed, and the benefits of the new road layout in terms of reductions in journey time were quantified and analysed in great depth. A mitigation design was put forward in the event of extreme public opposition to the chosen idea.
