Significant Roads

Shared Space Scheme

Elwick road is part of a trial of a pedestrian/traffic shared space. The intention seems that all traffic has equal priority. This is different from a pedestrian road (where pedestrans automatically have right of way). The road was (or is) still the A292 and normally would be a primary road. Currently the closest tag is highway=living_street.
