DfT Shared space project - Stage 1: Appraisal of shared space

This report sets out the findings of an appraisal into shared space. It concludes that shared space schemes appear to be beneficial in appropriate settings, and that from the data available, there is no evidence that shared space schemes, including those with shared surfaces, as implemented in the UK have more casualties than conventional layouts, or that particular groups, including disabled people, are injured more frequently following their introduction.
