The successful integration of transport and interchange facilities, ranging from train stations or light rail to bus stops, into the wider context of the precinct or neighbourhood is crucial to ensuring that active transport modes are attractive safe and well used and accommodate the needs of all customers including the elderly, children and those with reduced mobility.
Good station precinct and interchange design involves more than just providing safe and attractive routes to the station and accommodating effective interchange between different modes of travel. It also requires places that are legible, where public transport is easy to find and where it is supported by complimentary uses that are designed to ensure activation and passive surveillance.
At Studio GL we work on the strategic design of station precincts as well as seeking to uncover the challenges and reshape the designs to improve their identity, accessibility and interchange effectiveness.
