Exhibition Road Watch 

A few days ago Silent Running had the story of a curious experiment to to be performed in Exhibition Road, London. This experiment is as follows:

All traditional signals and barriers used to separate the carriageway and pavement will be removed and the question of who has priority will deliberately be left open. Even the kerb will be eliminated as part of the scheme to create Britain’s first such “shared space”. (From The Times)

Given that Exhibition Road is a couple of minutes away from my workplace, I think I'll keep a watch, and keep you informed on this experiment.

On Tue 11 Jan 2005 the status of Exhibition Road is: no roadworks in sight. The road was resurfaced just a few months ago.
