I've been exploring the concept of Shared Space in transportation lately and am obsessed with the intersection implemented in Poynton, UK. Shared Space is a traffic concept that gives equal rights to all modes of transportation within the right of way. I can't explain it any better than the clip below.
If you like what you see, I was recently able to spend some time with the designer of that intersection, Ben Hamilton-Baillie, at CNU22. His presentation was excellent and in some cases mind blowing. Here it is in its entirety if you are interested.
And finally, here's a presentation that I was able to find that does an excellent job explaining Shared Space and providing some additional examples of real world implementations.
So, this concept is becoming increasingly popular as it creates place, reduces traffic congestion and increases safety.. When can we do this here in Roswell?
