PLANNING FOR PEDESTRIANS IN THE CITY OF ZURICH

PLANUNG FUER DIE FUSSGAENGER IN DER STADT ZUERICH

In 1974 a pedestrian plan was drawn up for the City of Zurich. It comprised a uniform, wide-mesh main access network of 140 km in length, 90% of which already existed. In 1977 an overall plan for pedestrian traffic was produced. In this the network consists of the main access and promenades, the routes to the town centre, routes to the various local centres, routes to the forest and similar connections. The through network for the main links is to be fully equipped with traffic signals. Most of the network exists already, but some 148 measures are still necessary in order to add on missing links and provide constructional improvements. It is hoped, that at least in fine weather, walking times of 20 to 30 minutes will be accepted for journeys to work, if attractive footways are provided. (TRRL)
