Detail

Shared space is a design approach that seeks to change the way streets operate by reducing the dominance of motor vehicles, primarily through lower speeds and encouraging drivers to behave more accommodatingly towards pedestrians.

In the UK, shared space is usually applied to links and minor junctions with the aim of allowing pedestrians to move more freely within the space. This local transport note (LTN) focuses on high street environments, but many of its principles will apply to other types of shared space.
