Project Description

The safety of pedestrians is a critical area for improvement in a number of 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 research focuses on the individual risk of walking alongside roads versus individual risk of crossing roads.
The main objectives of the research are:
- To carry out a systematic literature review on the above topic
- To identify key pedestrian behavioural patterns of walking alongside roads versus crossing roads
- To embed the above findings in the iRAP pedestrian safety model.
- To improve key road design options for pedestrian safety

The project will be carried out in collaboration with iRAP (www.irap.net).
