Pedestrian infrastructure

Particular attention is paid to active modes and pedestrians (including PRMs) more specifically in the context of development or redevelopment projects for regional roads and public spaces.

Provisions are included in the Brussels-Capital Region's Regional Urban Planning Regulations (Title VII), while recommendations in favour of pedestrians come from both the (Brussels) General Assembly on Road Safety and the various sections of the pedestrian guide published by Brussels Mobility (GO10, pedestrian accessibility, etc.).

Adapted and safe pedestrian crossings, speed bumps, pavement lugs, traffic-free zones and facilities in the vicinity of schools are just some of the elements that contribute to pedestrian safety. In addition, the installation of podotactile paving stones, parking for the disabled, chamfered kerbs at crossings, etc. ensure optimum comfort for all users (including PRMs) walking in the public space.

In order to put these recommendations into practice, Brussels Mobility is working with all of the Brussels municipalities to draw up plans for the accessibility of roads and public spaces (PAVE).
