Improving pedestrian networks
Local authorities are increasingly focussing their attention towards improving pedestrian networks and developing high quality streetscapes. This reflects the recognition in local transport policy that high quality pedestrian environments help to meet national and local cross-sector policy objectives. This article describes the PERS (Pedestrian Environment Review System), an auditing tool to assist local authorities in deciding which aspects of the public realm require improvement and should be prioritised for funding, developed by the Transport Research Laboratory (TRL).
