PEDESTRIANS-THE FORGOTTEN FACTOR IN HIGHWAY DESIGN

AN APPRAISAL OF CURRENT PLANNING FOR THE PEDESTRIAN IS PRESENTED. IT IS STATED HOW THE HUMAN PROBLEMS OF THE PEDESTRIIAN ARE OFTEN GIVEN A SECONDARY IMPORTANCE TO THE CONVENIENCE OF THE AUTOMOBILE, AND THAT THE TECHNICAL MERIT OF A HIGHWAY SCHEME TENDS TO BE JUDGED ON THE BASIS OF THE IMPROVEMENT MADE IN THE TRAFFIC CONDITIONS RATHER THAN ON ITS JOINT EFFECT ON PEDESTRIAN AND MOTORIST. THE RADBURN SYSTEM AND THE BUCHANAN IDEALS ARE DISCUSSED IN SO FAR AS THEY AFFECT THE PEDESTRIAN, ALSO SUBWAYS, FOOTBRIDGES AND ALL OTHER METHODS OF GETTING PEDESTRIANS SAFETY ACROSS A ROAD.
