How to describe and evaluate the social/urban dimension in the city/river relation?

Reviewing previous work done on both the RiProCity and Urbem projects, a set of measurement units were defined, based roughly on the European Common Indicators

  • Main criteria for selecting indicators and measurements:

  • should be relevant to the description of the city-river system and its interactions

  • should be applicable to all cities with rivers

INDICATOR NUMBER 6: MOBILITY AND ACCESS TO THE RIVER the city/river relation?

A set of measurement units were defined, evaluating the city’s performance in:

• Spanning the river, so as to minimize the barrier effect it can impose on the city’s mobility patterns (linear density of bridges that allow pedestrian crossing)

• Providing sustainable accessibility to the riverfront (existence of public transport system stops within walking distance of the riverfront)

INDICATOR NUMBER 6: MOBILITY AND ACCESS TO THE RIVER the city/river relation?

Questions

Does the city have enough pedestrian crossings of the river to allow an adequate integration between city and river? Is the riverfront accessible?

Headline Indicator: Ease of river crossing and Access to the riverfront

Measurement:

M1) Ease of pedestrian river crossing

M2) Accessibility to the river corridor using public transport

  • INDICATOR NUMBER 6: MOBILITY AND ACCESS TO THE RIVER the city/river relation?

  • Questions to address/Future Developments

  • Ease of pedestrian river crossing

  • calculation of theriver crossings could be substituted by the length of each bridge span over the river length, instead of taking into account the average width of the river ?

  • ii)Accessibility to the river corridor using public transport

  • single walking distance or if different walking distances should be considered for different modes of transport?

  • Would the it work better as a ratio between the total area within walking distance of a stop that fell within the river corridor and the latter’s total area ?
