Radburn. Planning principle developed at Radburn, NJ, on lines suggested originally by Ebenezer Howard and promoted by Lewis Mumford, Clarence Stein, and others. The proposed town (which was later transmogrified as a commuter-suburb) was designed in 1929 to segregate pedestrians and traffic by having cul-de-sac feeder-roads and paths on bridges or in under-passes. This principle of segregation, known as Radburn planning, was also used in various New Towns created in Britain and on the Continent after the 1939–45 war.
