Design Dimensions Of Pedestrian Bridge

Apr 13, 2020

     The footbridge system can be simply defined as the elevated pedestrian walkway network, consisting of a street flyover, a two-storey corridor in the building and a wide variety of activity centres. Its main function is to connect the main walking points of the city centre in order to attract more customers and promote economic development.Pedestrian Bridge

     Many cities in the United States, such as São Paulo, Minneapolis and Cincinnati, built aerial human-line systems in the 60. The experience of these cities shows that the pedestrian walkway system can promote economic growth, so more and more central districts use this system. Pedestrian Bridge

     Although pedestrian footbridges are popular in the United States, there are still some problems. Economically, they reduce the value of flat space and the value of buildings that are not associated with them, which damage the appearance of old buildings in the city centre, and pedestrian footbridges may reduce the amount of street pedestrian traffic and the amount of walking activity, thus compromising the overall landscape of the city centre.Pedestrian Bridge

     Pedestrian overpass or tunnel design should be in line with the requirements of the city landscape, and close to the ground or underground buildings combined; pedestrian overpass or tunnel entrance should be planned for the distribution of people, the area should not be less than the ' $literal '. The net width of bridge deck should not be less than 3m, and the net width of each end ladder or ramp shall be greater than the net width of the bridge 1. More than twice times.Pedestrian Bridge

     The minimum net width of the ladder (slope) road is 1. 8m. Consider taking into account the bicycle trolley pass, a trolley bandwidth according to 1m, flyover or tunnel net width according to bicycle flow calculation increase channel net width, ladder (slope) road Minimum net width is 2m. Consider pushing the ladder of the bicycle, should adopt the way with the ramp of the ladder road, the width of a ramp should not be less than 0. 4m, ramp position as easy to set the cart flow.Pedestrian Bridge
