Introduction

´╗┐Terri Berry, Y2138736, DD131, TMA01 Page 1 With reference to what you have learnt about City Road, outline some of the differences across time and space on a street that you know. This essay aims to show some of the differences across time and space between City Road in Cardiff and Outram Street in Nottinghamshire. I will be looking at the different cultural aspects of takeaways and the different activities between the day and night on both streets. I will also be looking at the various materials of the street. Outram street started out life as a dirt road, surrounded by fields and landscape. The first building that was constructed on Outram Street was the ?New Cross hotel?, which still stands today. Outram street is a mixed residential and shopping street in Sutton-in-Ashfield, Nottinghamshire and consists of two roads that are separated by a roundabout. The buildings that reside in the street consist of various different businesses and flats and run down both sides of the street. ...read more.

Similarly there are similar types of restaurants in Outram street where people are brought together to enjoy a good night out. These include many cultural places that bring in the own speciality dishes such as, Chinese, Indian, Italian, Polish and British foods. Each takeaway and restaurant each make their own connections between different countries. When observing City Road in the day, it is evident that there are many types of people going about their day to day lives. There are people going to school, university, work, shopping and people carrying out various jobs on the street itself. For example, June Rogers (?Ordered Lives?, 2009, scene1) is a lollipop lady that works on City Road; her job is to stop traffic to let children cross the road safely. Like many main streets, Outram Street is equally alike in this way to City Road. In the day there is a lot of traffic on both streets. ...read more.

Conclusion

These are situated at each end of the street with just one set in the middle of the two sections that join the street. Furthermore, Police officers also help to make the City Road a better place to live. In an attempt to control crime levels, ?Operation Clean Sweep? was introduced. This project urged locals to report problems surrounding anti-social behaviour (Blakeley et al., 2009, p. 39). This included a special hotline telephone number that residents could call if they came across such problems. The Nottinghamshire police have various operations set up and crime in the town centre has had a 14% decrease compared to last year (Nottinghamshire Police, n.d.). In conclusion, I think that there are more similarities than differences between City Road and Outram Street. There are many cultural influences on both streets that come from the different businesses that occupy each street. This is good for society as it brings many different cultures together. The only contrast is the lack of crossings on Outram Street; this has an effect on pedestrian safety as there are very few crossings along the street. ...read more.
