Abstract:Footbridge is a crucial walking network to connect diverse destinations. Also, walkability is widely accepted to evaluate pedestrian environment. Nevertheless, it is usually ignored in urban context. This research analyses several case studies, and offers specific advantages as well as disadvantages from different footbridges. Then, street survey might be used for understanding users’ perspectives, and test the whole footbridge assessment framework. Therefore, this research tends to show care for pedestrian-friendly environment and promote sustainable lifestyle in cites.
