The single-platform spaces of coexistence (level surfaces or shared surfaces), or EPUC in its Spanish acronym, have become singular spaces whose development in recent decades has resulted in an undefined variety of types. This has led to many difficulties in their use, often also related to certain confusion about the concept of coexistence and shared spaces in themselves.
