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

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

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

  • Ease of pedestrian river crossing

Leiria:

Number of pedestrian crossings:

7 before Polis / 12 after

Number of shared crossings:

5 Before Polis / 6 after

Length of urban reach: 4231m

Average Width: 14,95m

M2 = 0,043 (before Polis)

M2 = 0,064 (after Polis)

ii) Accessibility to the river corridor using public transport

Leiria:

Number of stops on Mobilis lines:

17 on Mobilis 1 + 17 on Mobilis 2 =

34 stops within walking distance

Length of urban reach: 4.2 Km

M2 = 8,1 stops/Km

INDICATOR NUMBER 6: MOBILITY AND ACCESS TO THE RIVER

  • 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 ?
