I believe we should have an area of Mablethorpe’s High St and side streets that can be adapted and configured on an adhoc basis to many different safe pedestrian layouts whilst allowing traffic to flow and use those same areas when pedestrianisation is not needed with very little change being made to the roads.
This can easily be done by using light up Bollards that rise out of the road in various key points: Junctions that meet with the High St, Across the High St to allow side streets to join with each other i.e. George St to Wellington Rd. All intersections from Quebec Rd to Seacroft Rd. End of side streets – Victoria Rd/Knowles St, Wellington Rd/Tennyson Rd, Fitzwilliam St/Tennyson.
This will allow for multiple configurations to take place: Different parts of the High St, Victoria Rd, Fitzwilliam St, Carnival Routing, Multiple joining roads closed together.
This system will allow traffic flow as the bollards can be lowered when not needed and no road surfaces need changing.
