MaYA Fact Sheet #2 Walkability in Kathmandu Valley - Walking: Our Right-Of-Way
PDF File Size: 1.64 MB | Download   
Cities in Kathmandu Valley were traditionally designed for walking and Poviding communal space for people to meet. Large numbers of people in
Kathmandu Valley still walk for their daily mobility. A recent study by the Ministry of Physical Infrastructure and Transport, and JICA showed that the travel mode share of walking is 40.7%. However, the share of walking has declined by more than 23% in last two decades. This is mainly because the lans, policies and infrastructure development that were adopted are almost xclusively vehicle-friendly, discouraging people to walk or cycle. Increasing motorization and vehicle-prioritized infrastructure have led to increased ongestion, increased dependency on imported fossil fuel, high levels of air
pollution and dramatic increase in road fatalities especially among edestrians and cyclists.
