Grass-lined green tramlines for Sheffield?
Yesterday, Stuart Grimshaw (@Stubbs on Twitter) sent this link to inhabitat.com showing European trams and trains travelling through cities on green beds of grass and suggested how good it would look in Sheffield.
I agree, and think it would be a great way to enforce our greenest city credentials. As it puts it on inhabitat.com:
From Barcelona to the Czech Republic, Frankfurt, St-Etienne and Strasbourg, these public transit greenways are showing the potential of incorporating landscaping into good urban design.
Or, given the northern climate, would our beds or grass soon turn into urban mud baths?
