Greendykes North, Edinburgh

This important regeneration project in Edinburgh shows how shared space brings together all street users, including drivers, as part of the social world. The deliberate integration of traffic with other social activities reduces speeds and improves the relationship between pedestrians, cyclists and traffic. Precast concrete paving plays a key role - used to define areas and reduce speeds without signage - making external surfaces integral to the architectural design.

An Interpave case study is available here.
