FOOTBRIDGES AND SUBWAYS

SUCCESSFUL TRAFFIC ENGINEERING SOLUTIONS TO TRAFFIC CONGESTION REQUIRE MORE SEGREGATION OF PEDESTRIANS AND VEHICLES. TO ACHIEVE IT, MORE SUBWAYS AND FOOTBRIDGES WILL HAVE TO BE BUILT. HERE ARE THREE ARTICLES WHICH EXAMINE CURRENT SYSTEMS FOR BOTH SUBWAYS AND FOOTBRIDGES, WHICH ARE NOT NECESSARILY LIMITED TO ROAD CROSSINGS. "PEDESTRIAN SUBWAY CONSTRUCTION" BY P. J. BALDWIN SHOWS WHAT IS BEING DONE IN BASILDON, ESSEX IN CONCRETE CONSTRUCTION, FINISHES AND LIGHTING. "PEDESTRIAN FOOTBRIDGES" BY J. A. BERGG DISCUSSES THE OPTIONS THAT ARE OPEN TO A DESIGNER. "FOOTBRIDGE OR SUBWAY? SELECTING FOR A GIVEN LOCATION" BY G. W. PICKEN EXAMINES THE PROBLEM OF CHOICE THAT CONFRONTS AN URBAN LOCAL AUTHORITY, IN THIS CASE THE CITY OF LONDON.
