How does enriching a tertiary network contribute to improving pedestrian safety and security, and thus promote walking in dense metropolitan areas?
This is a research project on pedestrian safety – both road safety and personal security. It has recognised potential of tertiary networks as an alternative solution in promoting pedestrian safety, bringing people away from traffic through animated routes. It has adopted a systematic approach in understanding pedestrian needs and behaviour, identifying mitigation methods and potential challenges, such as conflicts between different street functions. A toolkit consisting a framework, action objectives, application guidelines and interventions are developed and tested against the literature review and casestudy findings. The methodical application has allowed for a clear establishment of tertiary network, linking key destinations, catering different users need. The study area chosen is an office-dominant location. The sensitive site analysis has introduced a site-specific approach, building on the distinctively different character of the site during different days of week, proposing different interventions and route enhancements for weekdays and weekends. During weekdays, the key focus is on road safety, by introducing pedestrianisation on streets with high pedestrian flow, and intersection managements that offer safer crossing and movement through the site. During weekends, the emphasis lies on personal security, which aims to retain and attract people to the area through route animations, provision of gathering space and introduction of activities. The application of toolkit has demonstrated its flexibility and ability to be used across different type and scale of projects within dense metropolitan areas.
