|Indicator Name||Street space for pedestrians|
|User Outcome||Human scale|
To measure the space within a road corridor that is allocated for pedestrian activities.
Movement can shape how comfortable people feel in places both negatively and positively, and the design of places can shape demand for movement where an area is more permeable for people walking, getting around on foot becomes the natural choice for short trips. Safe, direct and comfortable space should be provided for people walking. Greater space dedicated to people walking along a corridor improves the walkability and connectivity of an area and provides greater comfort levels for pedestrians.
This indicator will support practitioners to understand the experience of people walking within the road corridor, with particular importance in areas of high pedestrian activity. Based on the assessment outcome, practitioners can determine whether road space should be reallocated to people who walk in line with the TfNSW's Road User Space Allocation Policy.
Practitioners can use the proportion of road space allocated for pedestrians metric to measure the amount of space dedicated to pedestrians within the road corridor.
