you are not correct. The Shared Space concept is being challenged in the transport field. The much lauded benefits are over hyped when you look at the actual outcomes. It is now pretty disrespected!

It has its place in a few situations. Mainly roads with very low levels of traffic. Not many of those in Southwark.

But as a replacement for fully segregated or seperated cycle routes? Complete nonsense - I've been to the Netherlands and studied their infrastructure. If Southwark are relying on shared space to increase the numbers of people cycling they will fail spectacularly.

You appear to be expressing an opinion and clearly there's nothing wrong with that but you offer no actual evidence to support it. So it is a little strong to describe me as 'incorrect', you just don't happen to agree...

There is no room for the traffic let alone segregated cycle routes, shared sense makes perfect sense where there is no other option. Share Space = Shared Responsibility.

There is no such thing as responsibility, It's all about entitleMEnt now.

I'm not sure why this thread has made a comeback. However I'm declaring a moratorium on the interminable cyclists vs other road users debate over the long Easter weekend, so this thread ends here for now.
