ZWICKAU

Map of Zwickau,Germany
 Project goal and objective

• Current status of pedestrian traffic


1 in Zwickau

• Identifying obvious problems and


2 suggesting improvements

3 • Presenting a feasible solution


PEDESTRIANS

 Pedestrian crossings
• Pavements
 Signal post

Bicycles share the road with trams, buses


and pedestrians

Traffic light Female

Ampelmännchen
PEDESTRIAN TRAFFIC IN ZWICKAU
 Pedestrian footpath or pavements :-3m width
 Allocated for cyclers :- 1m width
 Prepared :- non-slippery tiles and stones
 Edges :- concrete boundaries
 Arranged lights giving a clear vision
 Zebra crossing lines and Metal barriers

Metal barrier at Neumarkt


 Signal post digital symbols and Information box
 Audible Pedestrian signals
 GDT –(Large Area Push Button)
 VDT – Verdeckter-DruckTaster (Hidden Push Button)

Großflächen-DruckTaster Verdeckter-DruckTaster

 Traffic flow of vechicles managed at more volume pedestrians

OBVIOUS PROBLEMS FACED BY
PEDESTRIANS
 Pedestrian time period is less
 No signals at the night
 Pedestrian crossing without traffic signal
 No Provision for pedestrian path

Crossing read signal at Neumarkt Pedestrians crossing zebra lines


at Westsächsische Hochschule
 Pavement width not appropriate

 Signal post without Push button and Audible detectors

IMPROVEMENTS

 Pedestrian crossing time can be increased


 Traffic signals be active during night
 LED markers can be implemented
─ Economical
─ Zero electrical charges

LED reflective markers in


Solar LED marker
pedestrian crossing
 Inserting traffic signals at the pedestrian crossings
─ Audible signals

 Width of the Pedestrian path can be increased


 Use of pedestrian crosswalk sign board at nonsignalised areas

Reflecting sign boards


SUMMARY

• Zwickau has a pedestrian friendly walking atmosphere but


some improvements required
• The main benefit : reduction of accidents and increse safety
• Saving lives are more valuable than any amount of money
• night the safety precautions taken is very less
• Improvements :- better pedestrian friendly and safe traffic
