Sight Line: Designing better streets for people with low vision is a partnership between CABE Space and the Royal College of Art’s Helen Hamlyn Centre. It identifies the issues that those with sight loss face when navigating their local area and makes recommendations for better designed streets.

It includes a mapping technique to communicate how residual sight users, long cane users and guide dog users adopt a combination of sound, touch, and memory to get around independently and safely.

Sight Line shows how better street design can transform life for people with low vision, helping them to become more confident and mobile.
