TRL delivers a workshop in Addis Ababa: “Integration of Non-Motorised Transport to BRT systems”

The workshop will be delivered by TRL senior consultant Stuart Greenshields, a transport planner with expertise in NMT and urban transport. Participants from all related stakeholders, such as the Addis Ababa Road & Transport Bureau, Addis Ababa City Road Authority, Anbessa, the Ethiopian Railway Corporation, and the Addis Ababa City Planning Project office are expected to attend the workshop and contribute their experience as well.

Workshop description

Non-motorised (pedestrians and cyclists) transport users need to integrate with the Bus Rapid Transport System – as the final leg of the journey is always on foot and people need to know where they are going and to do so in safety. This workshop will help practitioners within Addis Ababa understand the needs and demands of pedestrians and cyclists, and will cover the following areas:

Pedestrian access
Capacity and flow
Waiting areas
Ticket machines
Ticket barriers and other constraints to flow
Cycle access
Cycle parking
Segregation of cyclists and pedestrians

This one-day workshop will also include a short practical session out on the street. Those attending the course should be best placed to transfer knowledge from the course into the final designs for the pedestrian and cyclist environment in Addis Ababa.
