As part of Transport for London's commitment to improving the pedestrian environment throughout London, they commissioned Intelligent Space Partnership to undertake a major study of pedestrian activity, densities and accessibility for the entire Central Area TfL Road Network (TLRN).

The project outcome was to provide a tool to assist in the development of pedestrian strategies, programme's and schemes by TfL and their partners, enabling them to meet the objectives of the Mayor's Transport Strategy and Walking Plan for London.

Working closely with TfL personnel, ISP established a pedestrian hierarchy for seven key London boroughs as part of the project, examining street network accessibility,land uses and accident statistics. ISP then coordinated and supervised over 50 individual sites audits throughout the Central Area. Pedestrian flow and crossing activity was analysed, as well as a qualitative review of streetscape quality and amenities for pedestrians.
