Dan and Bex are coming to the end of their road trip. They’re finding out that changes, both big and small, can contribute to making a good road truly great!

Welcome to Exhibition Road – a truly TREMENDOUS example of a great road! 

Whilst this particular road has undergone major changes it’s not always a complicated job to turn a bad road into a great road. Sometimes all a designer needs to do is look at things that aren’t working and think about what would make a difference.

It could just be replacing old seats, barriers and other street furniture to tidy things up. If there’s an increase in the amount of traffic, perhaps simply changing the order of traffic lights will help keep things moving.

Bex and Dan’s Road Trip might be over but you’ll be GREAT at spotting great road, now you know what to look for! Who knows, maybe you’ll even come up with some ideas about how to improve the roads near where you live!
