Abstract

The rapid urbanization and population growth in cities have led to an increase in the number of pedestrians, making pedestrian planning a critical aspect of urban development. This study aims to analyze the pedestrian planning strategies implemented in the city of Medan, Indonesia. The analysis begins by examining the current pedestrian infrastructure and its adequacy to meet the needs of pedestrians in terms of safety, accessibility, and comfort. Various factors, such as sidewalk conditions, crosswalks, pedestrian signals, and street furniture, are evaluated to assess the overall quality of the pedestrian environment. The study also investigates the effectiveness of existing pedestrian planning policies and their alignment with international standards and best practices. It identifies any gaps or deficiencies in the current planning approach and provides recommendations for improvement. Furthermore, public opinion and stakeholder perspectives on pedestrian planning are considered through surveys and interviews to gain a comprehensive understanding of the challenges and opportunities faced by pedestrians in the city. Additionally, the analysis takes into account the influence of land use patterns, transportation systems, and urban design on pedestrian planning. It examines how these factors contribute to pedestrian connectivity, walkability, and overall urban livability.
