The central university road is very busy with traffics and splits highfield campus in two. Paving the central road, raising it to pavement height and limiting transport to buses/ taxi's between 9-5 will massively improve the atmosphere of campus. This will successfully connect the two sides into one big open square & make campus pedesterian friendly and greener.
Alternate routes around campus can be improved and the uni/council can redesign of the space, in a similar fashion to the city centre redevelopment plans. One upfront cost for a lifetime change to the feel of southampton university!
Unfortunately I don't have much of an update from this over the summer, but I will give this feedback to the University as part of their large-scale plans for campus over the next few years!

Thanks very much for this! It's certainly a great idea, and one that I do believe that the University are fairly open to in terms of their estate planning for the next few years. I can pass this on to my successor, Flora Noble, who can look into this with the University and see where it can go.
