/ Visionary / Transitional 

walkability1

A Walkable City has a network of pathways with Universal Access Standard that are pedestrian-centric, continuous and have proper on-grade crossing points with allowances. Starting with high priority areas, identify zones, nodes, spaces and corridors. Transition the Old City Centre into a *Pedestrianised Section. Introduce *Pedestrian & Cycling Corridors, *Building Bridges between broken sections, enhance the network with *Back Alleys, create new nodes with *Buffer Areas and *Institutional Nodes, and introduce a *Time / Area Specific schemes.
