Investigating the relation of highway design standards with network-level walkability: the case study of Luxembourg
This study assesses the disparity between good street design practice and highway design standards with respect to walkability. Using an example local network in the commune of Lorentzweiler in Luxembourg, the study first performs a large-scale network-level walkability evaluation using the well-established Pedestrian Environment Review System (PERS) pedestrian audit method in order to identify design shortcomings around the network. Then, focusing on the shortcomings identified, the study evaluates the findings with respect to the existing highway design standards of Luxembourg, highlights gaps in the latter and proposes amendments and additions that would enhance the walkability element in the design of new schemes and the retrofitting of existing ones.

Abstract

This study assesses the disparity between good street design practice and highway design standards with respect to walkability. Using an example local network in the commune of Lorentzweiler in Luxembourg, the study first performs a large-scale network-level walkability evaluation using the well-established Pedestrian Environment Review System (PERS) pedestrian audit method in order to identify design shortcomings around the network. Then, focusing on the shortcomings identified, the study evaluates the findings with respect to the existing highway design standards of Luxembourg, highlights gaps in the latter and proposes amendments and additions that would enhance the walkability element in the design of new schemes and the retrofitting of existing ones.
