The conceptual infrastructure design concepts aim to provide a safe and efficient road environment for all type of road users, and sustainable features to reduce the environmental impact of the impermeable surface in the future. The proposal aims to increase the awareness of future mobility change, the design concepts provide strategies to adapt to future mobility needs. Besides infrastructure design, it also proposes a connect mobility network wayfinding system to offer convenience for visitors and road users to effectively reach the destinations.
Infrastructure Design Key components:
- Travel Lane: The reduced width travel lanes in the urban environment to reduce vehicle driving speed;
- Regular Parking Zone: On street parking are still preserved for automobiles.
- Protected Bike Lane: The buffered bike lane provides flexible car door opening space and a safe buffer for cyclists.
- AVs Zone: Off traffic loading and unloading zone for AVs provide non-interference AV stop
Mobility Network components:
Wayfinding Kiosk: The kiosk provides local mobility network information and key local destinations' information. The information will provide real-time transit connection information and information on optional travel mode, such as bike-share, ride-hailing, e-scooter, etc.
Stormwater filtration Pond: On-street stormwater filtration ponds reduces the stormwater surface runoff and risks of sewage overflow.
Other possible feature:
Ride-hailing Waiting Furniture: The furniture provides liveliness on the sidewalk and the rest places for pedestrians and riders.
Bike Share-Station: Close by bike share station provides convenient last mile travel option.
Note: the component arrangement would depend on the street section and surrounding urban context.
