Abstract [en]

It is difficult to design pedestrian-friendly environments due to the ambiguities of the

recommendations. It is both modern and important to design a sustainable society. To find

representative policys, both national and international literature were used in this essay. The

main purpose of the observation study was to examine if the recommendations is accurate.

Strömbron and Västerbron, both in Stockholm, Sweden were analyzed. There is a lot of

recommendations for efficient width on pedestrian lanes. These recommendations are not

always taken in consideration, and sometimes completely ignored, when designing pedestrian

areas. A recommendation is not a demand and it is not always clear to what is. In swedish

litterature there is suggestions for individual space and they are not up to date. Levels of space

is used for sidewalks to determine its purpose. The most favorable level of space means that

the pedestrian can choose its walking speed without interacting with other pedestrians.

According to the observation study the space given today is not enough and should therefore

be updated. In countries around the world, who already got outspoken demands on the width of sidewalks, the planning process is eased, du to the given framwork.
