'Shared space' design benefits pedestrians

As part of the Centenary project, the University implemented a new ‘shared space’ design on Salisbury Road to make walking across Highfield Campus much easier.

The changes make the road significantly more welcoming to pedestrians than before, allowing them to cross easily from the north to the south side of campus, and providing access for cyclists travelling to and from the Common.

The new design, with its combination of road narrowing and trees, aims to slow traffic considerably, making it safer for cyclists, pedestrians and motorists. However, please remember that Salisbury Road remains a public highway and there will be traffic using it for access, so do make appropriate checks when using this space.
