  • "Architects have come up with designs for how Moseley would look if a revolutionary scheme to remove bollards, kerbs and traffic signals gets backing. Under the plans, creating a single level for roads a pavements would mean there would be no clear boundaries for drivers, pedestrians and cyclists and no marked crossings or traffic lights.

    Instead road users would be forced to find their own route through busy junctions and, according to the creators, approach more safely. The success of shared space schemes – also known as “naked street” – at slashing accident rates in Holland have led to UK councils introducing them in congested towns centres"
