In Srinagar City, in India, compared to other Indian cities 75 percent of sidewalk facilities are not available and the availability of sidewalk facilities as per Srinagar Development Authority (SDA) is 24–25%. According to the master plan of Srinagar, Jammu, and Kashmir, the authors studied walkway key indicator concepts, safe design guide lines of sidewalks, segment qualitative, and walkability indicators as per four-C rule and compared Indian cities with other Asian cities based on the walkability score index (WSI), model conflict rating analysis, and availability of walking paths. From this study, the authors concluded that in future there is a scope to construct the new lanes of sidewalk facilities, ensure maintenance and cleanliness of walking path, sidewalk obstructions, sidewalk continuity, sidewalk width condition, sidewalk quality, and sidewalk surface conditions in the Srinagar City.
