Some went towards restoring the Model Traffic Area. Its streets were repaired, its pavements relaid and a set of modern road signs added to bring the site into the 21st century. There are no permanent traffic lights, but a portable set can be wheeled out when community groups use the upgraded network to teach cycle proficiency.</span></p>
