When I first heard the term street furniture I had this very odd image in my head of sofas and TVs in the middle of the road, sadly its not. Street furniture is a description of items that you find as you walk or drive down the street from bollards, to traffic signs, to litter bins.
BollardsBollards are used for controlling and blocking vehicle access to certain areas, whether this is restricted premises, parking spaces or pedestrianised areas.
Cycle Rack & SheltersMore and more cycle racks and shelters are appearing across cities especially since the introduction of Boris Bikes in London back in 2010, a clever cycle hire scheme which encourages the public to cycle rather than drive.
Outdoor SeatingOutdoor seating is mainly seen in parks, residential areas or squares in the urban and suburban areas.
Pedestrian HandrailsThis is another item which you will see on a daily basis without even thinking about it, pedestrian handrails.
