Abstract

A pedestrian friendly area encourages the inhabitants to experience the place enjoyably on foot. A pedestrian's sense of comfort is defined by the environmental qualities that encourage walking. The city's environmental qualities also make them better for walking, encouraging both physical and social activities. This Study focuses on safety and walkability in the University of Sindh. According to a survey done by researchers at the University of Sindh, the important issue at the university is lacking pedestrian facilities. Therefore, this study covers major facets of walkability. It is envisioned for policymakers and planners who want to improve the walking spaces for their communities with the best current information on pedestrian facilities. This research identified basic details about the specific walking plans and project creation. It includes trail preparation, roads, street lighting, street repairs, path and track repair, public protection, personal security, etc. This research explores the improvement of university walkways to accommodate pedestrian through Average Index Model. In addition, the study presents recommendations on the issue of pedestrian safety. Also, discusses how University of Sindh’s road network aspects and addresses how campus roadway system could include sustainable transportation choices for inhabitants.
