Phil Jones, Managing Director, Phil Jones Associates: Local Transport Note on Shared Streets (LTN 1/11): a critical review

  1. 1. RUDI – 3rd Annual Sharing the Streets Conference Better Streets – What Really Works? I think about Shared Space? So..what do we know about Shared Space? Phil JonesPhil Jones Associates sustainable transport solutions
  2. 2. What is Shared Space? LTN 1/11 Sharing: The ability and willingness of pedestrians, facilitated by the sympathetic behaviour of motorists and others, to move freely around the street and use parts of it that, in a more conventional layout, would be considered largely dedicated to vehicular use. In the UK, it is usually applied to links and minor junctions with the aim of allowing pedestrians to move more freely within the space. Er…is that it?Phil Jones Associates sustainable transport solutions
  3. 3. What is Shared Space? Manual for Streets 2 With less or no traffic management, or clear indication of priority, motorists are encouraged to recognise the space as being different from a typical road and to react by driving more slowly and responding directly to the behaviour of other users (including other motorists) rather than predominantly to the traffic management features.Phil Jones Associates sustainable transport solutions
  4. 4. When does a space become shared? Decreasingly segregatedGuardrails Conventional Low kerbs, Level Surface, kerbs, different common material Minimal/No materials delineation Increasingly shared Increasingly cooperativePhil Jones Associates sustainable transport solutions

  11. 11. What are the benefits? There is sufficient evidence to suggest that well-designed schemes in appropriate settings can bring benefits in terms of visual amenity, economic performance and perceptions of personal safety.

  12. 12. DfT - Mixed Priority Route Demonstration Project – 2003 to 2008 • 10 Demonstration sites across England • Busy high streets with problems • Tackled through urban-design led, consultative approach • Several schemes include ‘Shared Space’ elements • Significant safety, environmental and economic benefitsPhil Jones Associates sustainable transport solutions

  20. 20. What do we know about...Links? Reducing the degree of segregation between users produces slower traffic, more pedestrians using whole of the space – MVA Research. But... Getting drivers to cede to pedestrians on links is difficultPhil Jones Associates sustainable transport solutions

Conclusions Shared Space schemes in the UK are generally working well, and Can be applied to both links and busy junctions Which have different characteristics and requirements In many cases, some form of median or crossing will be needed if we want drivers to cede priority More research needed on linkage between behaviour and environment pj@philjonesassociates.co.uk Twitter.com/Phil_PJA 0121 222 5422Phil Jones Associates sustainable transport solutions
