Camarate Centre – Define a centrality in Camarte from its major commercial route –Rua Avelino Salgado de Oliveira and Rua Guilherme Gomes Fernandes – and from Largo da Igreja de Santiago.
Pedestrian areas – Increase the pedestrian areas throughout Rua Avelino Salgado de Oliveira and Rua Guilherme Gomes Fernandes namely on the sidewalk to the north so as to increase the commercial potential of shops.
The paving is proposed surrounding the Igreja de Santiago reinforcing its character as a historical centre.
Transit routes – Reduce the width of the transit routes for a dimension of 3.10m in each opposing lane and promote a slowdown in traffic.
Diversity of public space typologies – In Camarate exists a large diversity of public space typologies in a location with a sclale of a small urban settlement: Narrow Pedestrian Street (kind of alley), Largo da Igreja, Main Street, Gallery style Street, Covered Space under the Viaduct. This diversity should be considered positive and other additions should promote this diversity (i.e. Garden).
Park / Urban Sports – Create under the CRIL viaduct an urban sports activity park to attract the young to the centre of Camarate. Due to being covered, this park may be used in hot and rainy days. The activities will be many such as: Skate Parks, Basketball Area, climbling area, etc. It shall have an intense lighting so as to function 24 hours PER DAY. This Park could have an importance on an urban scale an promote Camarate in the Lisbon metropolitan area,
Streets with a pedestrian characteristic– Rua/Azinhaga to the south and Rua/Azinhaga to the north may be established as a continuous system with pedestrian characteristics. This system should connect the southern area and the centre of Camarate to Escola EB 2/3 Mário de Sá Carneiro and to Cemitério Municipal. This pathway is similar to the structure of the Camarate farms, articulating the Quinta do Redondo, Quinta da Encarnação, Quinta de Stª Bárbara, Quinta da Vitória and Quinta da Ribeirinha.
