Busy roads cause problems for people who want to walk along or cross them, and separate local residents from goods, services and other people, with possible negative consequences on health and wellbeing - an issue known as "community severance" or "the barrier effect" of roads on pedestrians. The UCL Street Mobility toolkit offers a suite of methods to help local governments and local communities assess and value the costs of community severance. The toolkit includes participatory mapping, a health and neighbourhood mobility survey, video surveys, a valuation tool, a walkability model, space syntax and street audits.

Good Example

All tools in the UCL Street Mobility toolkit were tested in four case study areas: two in London, one in Southend, and one in Birmingham. Case study descriptions are included in the toolkit report on the website.
