DIY Streets, Sustrans ‘Home Zones’

by Thomas Thrussell on 01/16/15

Ever heard of the Sustrans DIY Streets? DIY Streets is a community led traffic calming, safety and street improvement program! In 2009 we worked on one of these streets as the first nationwide trials were tested by Stustrans (sustainable transport). We were commissioned to work with a community to develop the art and recreation part of the project.

Working with Iden Road in Coventry we created a sculptural tree guard as a focal-point and an indestructible herb garden. We also ran copper beating workshops alongside the project to engage with the community and to create an opportunity for people to come together and forge new friendships.
