Pedestrian travel is categorized as a form of NMT. The appropriate national policy as advocated by the NUTP is described in the NMV section of this Module.

The steps in designing measures for pedestrians are similar to those for NMVs, commencing with a diagnosis of the existing situation to ascertain the baseline condition, followed by consideration of policy options, then potential measures and finally selection and design of appropriate facilities.

Facilities for pedestrians should also take into account the needs of disabled persons to create a barrier free environment accessible by all sectors of society.
