Transit oriented development

Pedestrian transport planning for TODs in China

By Wedderburn News No Comments

The construction of new metro lines continues at a fast pace in China, but transit stops in Chinese cities often suffer from poor pedestrian accessibility. With an ageing population and fast-growing cities, station accessibility is key to unlock the full potential of public transport and promote sustainability.

In this article for Urban China magazine, Georgies Srour and Martin Wedderburn seek to explain the reasons behind this phenomenon. After analysing the spatial, policy-related and economic challenges transit-oriented developments are facing in China, we propose solutions adapted to the Chinese context.
