Guidance and case studies on how the philosophies set out in the Manual for Streets can be extended beyond residential streets to encompass both urban and rural situations.
‘Manual for streets 2 - wider application of the principles’, a companion guide to ‘Manual for streets’, was published by the Chartered Institution of Highways and Transportation (CIHT) on 29 September 2010.
‘Manual for streets 2’ builds on the philosophies set out in ‘Manual for streets’ and demonstrates through guidance and case studies how they can be extended beyond residential streets to encompass both urban and rural situations. It fills the perceived gap in design advice that lies between ‘Manual for streets’ and the design standards for trunk roads as set out in the ‘Design manual for roads and bridges’. It will help everyone involved in the planning, construction and improvement of our streets to deliver more contextually sensitive designs.
‘Manual for streets 2’ is not available from the Department for Transport. Please use the link below for more information, including how you can order copies from the CIHT.
