PEDESTRIAN CROSSING FACILITIES IN BUSY AREAS OF VISAKHAPATNAM

    Gowda Kavya shree, V.M. Naidu

Abstract

Pedestrian crossings are important for accessing the adjacent land use facilities in daily life. Improperly designed crossing facilities cause discomfort to pedestrians and may even jeopardize their safety as well as being a hindrance to the smooth flow of vehicle traffic. These problems exist especially in developing countries such as India, where mixed traffic conditions prevail and road discipline is essentially absent. Thus, the design of efficient crossing facilities considering the flow of both pedestrians and vehicles is of utmost importance in these countries. Pedestrians are an important part of the road traffic, but they are given scant attention and they are not provided with adequate facilities for their smooth movement on the road. For City development, pedestrian system should be well designed, safe and convenient. In this work pedestrian facility at Jagadamba junction, Visakhapatnam location is planned. Jagadamba junction is considered as city’s major commercial complex for various operations related to shopping and hospitals, the traffic movement and management of this junction should be given at most priority. Data survey is planned using existing condition. To comprehend this objective, pedestrian–vehicle (PV2) values are observed Video-graphic surveys were conducted, and both macroscopic and microscopic characteristics were extracted at 15-minute levels from the recorded video. Thereafter, level of service (LOS) thresholds is developed based on the extracted microscopic characteristics covering both operational (pedestrian delay) and vehicle delay time aspects 3D modelling of pedestrian moment is planned in VISWALK software. New methods are proposed to control the pedestrian movement system and comparison are planned between existing and proposal method to provide better facility to pedestrian in this work.
