Building Bridges

/ Visionary / Transitional


Identify connecting points and crossings in between landlocked sections of the city that are enclosed by natural and man-made features that act as physical barriers to accessibility. Create lifelines to enhance the area’s livability and improve accessibility. Identify potential social bridges and strengthen existing ones, with potentials to provide a *Pedestrian Corridor and create new *Nodes.
