Résumé / Abstract

In an earlier paper the traffic barrier concept and related measurement issues were discussed. The traffic barrier has defined as : '... the sum of inhibiting effects upon pedestrian behaviour resulting from the impact of traffic conditions within a specified environmental/street context. These effects can be either physical (observable) and psychological (unobservable) impediments to pedestrian movement'. This paper reports findings from research into relationships between pedestrian behaviour, perceptions and changing traffic conditions, and the measurement of the extent of the traffic barrier experienced by pedestrians. These relationships have important implications for the design and implementation of traffic calming, bus priority and other types of traffic management schemes. An improved understanding would also greatly assist in setting clearer policies and priorities for the provision of pedestrian crossing facilities.
