How 'walkable' is Bristol?



Date: 29 May 2019
Time: 7pm - 8:30pm
Cost: Free

During Bristol Walkfest 2019, the 'walkability' of several neighbourhoods will be considered.

Walkability is a measure of how friendly an area is to walking and the extent to which the built environment is friendly to the presence of people living, shopping, visiting, enjoying or spending time in an area. Factors affecting walkability include, but are not limited to: quality of footpaths and pavements, street design and use, volumes of motorised traffic, convenience of walking routes, safety, road crossings, places to rest, lighting, signage and more ...

The Bristol walks to assess walkability include: routes to school in Easton; walking routes to Broadwalk Shopping Centre; walking around Westbury-on-Trym village. Come and join us to find out the results.
