Using wearable camera as one of the creative methods, the Kampala i-CMiiST team walked along Namirembe road to capture what it looks like now.
Why Namirembe road? This is an area due for transformation by the Kampala Capital City Authority (KCCA) to include a pedestrian walkway and cycling lane. The city authority also intends to limit the number of private cars that ply this road.
Here are some shots captured using a wearable camera showing some of the issues that are expected to be fixed as road is transformed into pedestrian and cycle only route.
The I-CMiiST project is funded by the British Academy’s Cities & Infrastructure programme and explores whether more creative co-design methods can reveal alternative more inclusive streetscape options that facilitate safer urban mobility. It is collaboration between creative experts in the UK and East Africa with transport planners and policy makers.
