Poynton Regenerated

This is a video showing how one village in the U.K. decided to try a new approach to routing traffic through the city center. This "shared space" approach is fascinating and gives the focus back to the people and the physical space itself, and it's done by removing many of the typical traffic control measures that have become so common.

The City of New York has taken a similar, partial, approach in Times Square, and it's had a great affect. There are still traffic lights, but removing a couple of lanes, reconfiguring the parking, and making the space more pedestrian-friendly have made it easier to move down Broadway between 42nd Street and Herald Square.
