Shared Spaces – Auckland – A Safety and Operational Performance Study
Keywords: Design of Safer Roads
In 2017 a safety and operational performance study was undertaken of Shared Spaces in the Auckland CBD. The study included an international literature review and surveys at five Shared Spaces. The Shared Spaces were generally considered to be operating reasonably successfully. However, excessive traffic speeds and volumes were evident at two Shared Spaces, which needed addressing. Various measures were recommended for reducing traffic speeds and volumes within the Shared Spaces, which would be expected to enhance their safety and operational performance, and should also be considered for incorporation into future Shared Spaces.
