Benefits of New and Improved Pedestrian Facilities - Before and After Studies
The New Zealand Transport Agency has released a report that explores case studies at eight New Zealand sites where the implementation of new pedestrian facilities or the improvement of existing facilities led to increased pedestrian usage and improved perception of the sites.
The report examines pedestrian rates both before and after facility implementation, and analyzes accompanying factors such as safety, delay, and directness. It also highlights an expected pedestrian-usage model, based on before and after data analysis, for planners and funding agents to use when planning new or improved facilities, and for use in project evaluation.
