Shared Space: Reconciling People, Places and Transport
Start date: Sep 28, 2003, End date: Jul 29, 2008 PROJECT  FINISHED 

The main aim of the Shared Space project was to set up an innovative road traffic project by a new approach with designing public space where traffic no longer dominated the environment rather, balanced itself out with other functions. The project therefore intended to develop new policies and methods for an integrated approach towards the planning of public space for which man and his surroundings were taken as the basis. Achievements: The project has succeeded with the development of knowledge and understanding of new approaches of reconciling traffic movement within cities, towns and villages. Largely as a result of the transnational exchanges developed and carried out in the course of the project, the concept of Shared Space is now widely accepted and used throughout the European Community even to say as well, other regions outside Europe.Over the course of the project, the publicity and national/international interest exceeded all expectations. The project attracted a substantial amount of interest from the general and professional press as well the other forms of media throughout the world by means of television and radio programmes, newspapers, magazines as well professional and specialist journals. An established interactive website has also proven useful for helping distribute information and expertise concerning the project.
