Pedestrian travel: Getting Queenslanders walking safely. Final report

Schonfeld, Cynthia C. & Musumeci, Angela (2003) Pedestrian travel: Getting Queenslanders walking safely. Final report. CARRS-Q, QUT, Brisbane.

Abstract

This report is a literature review of national and international research, policy, evaluation and other forms of evidence relating to the benefits of increased pedestrianization and improved road safety. The components of good practice programs, together with some national and international examples of programs that report positive results in encouraging increased pedestrianization and pedestrian safety, are identified. Policy directions that support and encourage increased walking and pedestrian safety are also discussed and some examples provided. The report also provides some recommendations for possible priority directions for future research, monitoring and evaluation in the area of increased pedestrianization and pedestrian safety. As part of this project, a catalogue of resources in database format to help inform Queensland Transport’s future activities was developed. The catalogue is also a resource practitioners, community organisations, local government or any other organisation or individual who wishes to access information, resource or material in relation to pedestrians.

Impact and interest:

Citation countsare sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
