The CTLes – Center Technique du Livre de l’Enseignement Supérieur – and the BnF’s conservation and storage center are located in the Parisian suburbs on a site dominated by employees’ cars and delivery trucks. To facilitate the movement of vehicles and secure pedestrians who pass from one building to another, we have made a painted sign on the ground to indicate to vehicles the direction of traffic, stopping points, maneuvering spaces but also drawn in a flexible way, a darker path taking up the natural strolls for pedestrians. Pedestrians are given priority, trucks must slow down when crossing the path.
