Abstract

Walking is one of the key element in urban transportation, particularly in India because of the flexibility and mobility involved in it. As a developing country India’s road traffic consist of various kind of vehicles having different operational characteristics. But pedestrian are the largest road user and are also the most vulnerable. The main aim of this study is to recognize the several factors affecting pedestrian level of service (PLOS) at signalized and unsignalized intersections and to recommend a proper approach for assessment of pedestrian level of service. As pedestrian level of service (PLOS) is not well defined for mixed traffic flow condition on urban corridors in India, an attempt has been made to represent unpredictability and complication of human perceptions.
A questionnaire was prepared considering various factors affecting the quality of facility to know the perceived level of service of pedestrians. Required data was collected from nine cities of India i.e. New Delhi, Gorakhpur, Lucknow, Dhanbad, Tirupati, Hyderabad, Secunderabad, Rourkela and Chennai. By considering significant factors as independent variables stepwise regression analysis was developed which is suitable for urban Indian conditions. The study revealed that various factors affecting pedestrian level of service under mixed traffic condition.
