    Walkability and Pedestrian Facilities in Asian Cities State and Issues

    Asian cities, traditionally cities of walkers, are now experiencing exponential increase in motorization, which has limited the attention given to pedestrian and public transport facilities. A change in focus that will allow people, not vehicles, to reclaim the urban environment is required. The study provides information on the current pedestrian infrastructure in selected cities that can be used to develop and propose pedestrian-focused solutions for Asian cities.
