Walkability
A key component of a city’s LIVEABILITY


Global trend • Walking is good to health and the
               environment
                  • Pedestrian-First Approach to city planning.
                  • “People will walk when they can sit…”
                  • Pedestrian network is the city’s most
                    important public space, not only for transport,
                    but also for social life
Walkability
A key component of a city’s LIVEABILITY


   Hong Kong • 80% of Hong Kong people walk everyday
                  • Hong Kong is a walkable city:
                    you don’t need a car to get around
                  • However, pedestrians face obstacles:
                    poor connectivity, level changes, over-
                    crowding, conflict with vehicles, inclement
                    weather, air and noise pollution
                  • The challenge is how to make it enjoyable for
                    people to walk longer and further

•   Street obstacles
•   Universal access
•   Lack of seating
•   Street aesthetics
•   Way-finding obstacles

UNIQUE ISSUES - TSIM SHA TSUI
Difficult to find your way: Maps of subway network are incomplete
Cut and paste to create a complete map of the subway network
After removal of the pedestrian crossing at Nathan Road and
Salisbury Road in 2004, you need to make long detours and
level changes to get from the station to the waterfront.

Add a street crossing to the waterfront?
Add subways straight across Salisbury Road?
Create connections through parks and open spaces?
Remove obstacles from the street?
Make sure all the maps are pointing north?
Rethink the signage in Tsimshatsui?

Recommendations to improve walking in TST
 •   Plan for district networks, not just station networks

 •   Prioritize pedestrian connectivity at street level

     •   Crossing of Salisbury Road in front of the Peninsula
     •   Crossing of Kowloon Park Drive at Peking Road
     •   Widen effective footway (remove obstacles, widen pavement)
     •   Integrate parks and properties into pedestrian network planning
Recommendations to improve walking in TST
 •   Provide comprehensive climate controlled grade separated network

     •   Consolidate all below ground links as one network
     •   Expand the underground network
     •   Direct link from the MTR station to the waterfront

 •   Branding of the grade separated network

     •   Naming and icon
     •   Name each tunnel (same name as road above)
     •   Extent visual identity of properties underground (land marks)
     •   Standardize direction signage to entrances
     •   Standardize maps and direction signage inside
     •   Replicate a busy street: shops, seating, busking, …
Recommendations to improve walking in TST
 •   Enhance way finding

     •   Develop a mapping system for a layered city
     •   Create navigation applications for handheld and other devices
     •   North is north
     •   Create one consolidate pedestrian information system
         irrespective of ownership
     •   Single naming system for entrances & exits

 •   Enhance finding of barrier free access

     •   Identify barrier free routes
     •   Directional signage to barrier free access facilities
     •   Notices (such as lift repair) should be bilingual
Develop new mapping system for navigation in
              a layered city
• Hong Kong as a layered city
• The loss of intuitive way-finding
• Not helped by design inconsistency, incomplete
  maps, inconsistent signage because of different
  ownerships
• New mapping systems and navigational tools
  required

  • 2. Walkability A key component of a city’s LIVEABILITY Global trend • Walking is good to health and the environment • Pedestrian-First Approach to city planning. • “People will walk when they can sit…” • Pedestrian network is the city’s most important public space, not only for transport, but also for social life
  • 3. Walkability A key component of a city’s LIVEABILITY Hong Kong • 80% of Hong Kong people walk everyday • Hong Kong is a walkable city: you don’t need a car to get around • However, pedestrians face obstacles: poor connectivity, level changes, over- crowding, conflict with vehicles, inclement weather, air and noise pollution • The challenge is how to make it enjoyable for people to walk longer and further

  • 35. Recommendations to improve walking in TST • Provide comprehensive climate controlled grade separated network • Consolidate all below ground links as one network • Expand the underground network • Direct link from the MTR station to the waterfront • Branding of the grade separated network • Naming and icon • Name each tunnel (same name as road above) • Extent visual identity of properties underground (land marks) • Standardize direction signage to entrances • Standardize maps and direction signage inside • Replicate a busy street: shops, seating, busking, …
  • 36. Recommendations to improve walking in TST • Enhance way finding • Develop a mapping system for a layered city • Create navigation applications for handheld and other devices • North is north • Create one consolidate pedestrian information system irrespective of ownership • Single naming system for entrances & exits • Enhance finding of barrier free access • Identify barrier free routes • Directional signage to barrier free access facilities • Notices (such as lift repair) should be bilingual
  • 37. Develop new mapping system for navigation in a layered city • Hong Kong as a layered city • The loss of intuitive way-finding • Not helped by design inconsistency, incomplete maps, inconsistent signage because of different ownerships • New mapping systems and navigational tools required
