About the Project

The safety of pedestrians is a critical area for improvement in international programmes. The pedestrian star ratings used by iRAP provide an initial benchmark of safety performance and priority improvements that are cost effective. Priority research needs for pedestrians exist in a number of areas. This project focuses on methods of estimation of pedestrian flow that can be applied in low and middle income countries.
The main objectives of the research are:
- To carry out a systematic literature review on the above topic
- To develop a new method of estimation of pedestrian flow
- To develop and test an associated model
- To embed the above findings in the iRAP pedestrian safety model.

The project will be carried out in collaboration with iRAP (
