Draft guidelines for designing line infrastructure for pedestrians
Abstract: The Ministry of Infrastructure has launched work on changing the technical conditions to be met by roads and road design standards. As part of the set of standards, new “Guidelines for the design of pedestrian infrastructure” have been also developed. The second part of this project is “Guidelines for designing pedestrian line infrastructure”. The article presents the identification of problems in designing pedestrian infrastructure in Poland and an overview of the measures to solve these problems in other countries. The principles of designing a pedestrian line infrastructure are also discussed in the article.
Key words: pedestrians, designing, pedestrian infrastructure, pedestrian roads, pedestrian lane

Draft of Pedestrian Crossing Infrastructure Design Guidelines
Abstract: The article presents the draft of “Pedestrian Crossing Infrastructure Design Guidelines” (WRD-41-3). The guidelines were developed as part of the work by the Ministry of Infrastructure to create standards for planning, design and maintenance of road infrastructure. The article presents a condensed version of the guidelines together with the justification of the adopted solutions for pedestrians crossing roads, tram tracks and railway lines. An important element of pedestrian safety is the provision of visibility fields, short pedestrian crossings and relevant elements of traffic organization. The article provides a method for choosing the optimal solution for the type of pedestrian crossing.
