Understanding and Improving Pedestrian Delay at Traffic Signals

Abstract Remit

As urban growth leads to society progressively becoming more urbanised, the challenge of balancing the needs of different transport users becomes more complex.  Too often, pedestrians are overlooked by a desire to move more people as fast as possible as far as possible.  Once people reach central city areas and start walking, the urban environment tends to be defined by wide busy roads that can be intimidating and difficult to cross.
