The practice of classifying streets has both a descriptive element and a prescriptive element: it concerns not only the recognition of a variety of characteristic types of streets across different contexts, but allows consistent decisions to be made about their design and management over space and time. This can allow a diversity of ongoing measures, perhaps by different agencies along the length of a street and through time, to reinforce each other progressively to wards the overall intended role of the street.
