The Tolerance Zone campaign was launched at River Park by J&T REAL ESTATE to address this issue and appeal to both sets of users. The campaign survey showed that up to a quarter of respondents had experienced a collision along the promenade, and up to two-thirds considered other solutions an improvement on the current status.
