The study area for my Streets Without Cars design project is the section of Johnston Street in Collingwood bounded by Gold Street to the west and Hoddle Street to the east. A number of streets and laneways such as Campbell Street, Palmer Street, Harmsworth Street, Francis Street and Sydney Street enter Johnston Street from the south.
The street comprises a medium density property layout, with a mixture of one to two storey shops, offices, workshops and residences. Johnston Street is approximately 21m wide, with 14m dedicated to east-west bound vehicle movement, shared bus / bicycle lanes and parallel parking. The footpaths on either side of the street are 3m wide with immature tree plantings.
