Access Covers For Shared Spaces

What are Shared Surfaces? 

  • Areas where the demarcation between pedestrians and drivers is minimised.
  • Use deep paving materials rather than typical road construction materials.
  • Areas that have low speed limits.
  • Qualify as B125 areas because they feature slow moving traffic.

What happens when a B125 access cover is trafficked by vehicles?
