New Urban Design Looks at Shared Spaces

In urban street design, a new movement known as 'shared spaces' has been emerging. This new movement "aims to reduce the dominance of cars by getting people and vehicles to share the road space," according to Walkonomics.

"New research examined a range of streets, from traditional streets with kerbs to ‘Shared Surface' streets, where it is hard to tell where the pavement ends and the carriageway begins, such as New Road in Brighton."

The research team also found that drivers were fourteen times more likely to give-way to pedestrians in shared space streets.
