Abstract

This paper assesses the influence of motorised traffic on pedestrian mobility in an area in London surrounded by major roads. Pavement and crossing flows obtained by a video survey are analysed in comparison with data on bus stop usage. The flows along the busiest road are lower than it would be expected given the location of the road along the walking routes to bus stops. The propensity to cross the road (overall and informally) correlates negatively with traffic levels, especially in roads with medium traffic speeds. The hypothesis that local residents avoid crossing the road away from designated facilities is also supported by differences in the number of passengers boarding and alighting buses at different stops.
