ABSTRACT

Major function of road in urban areas has been serving fast and safe traffic to vehicle drivers up to the present. But change is in the air. We are about to witness that urban roads can be used as an attractive space having various functions, such as a multi-faceted cultural place where people can enjoy leisure or social activities, exchange opinions or information, and form small or private communities. In this respect, it is for now significant to examine why urban road space must be used for various purposes in theory and how the use of road space could be facilitated in practice. The study mainly aims at developing and implimentation of empirical models to use urban road space in various ways. The study consists of three parts as follows. Firstly, it reviews theories and foreign cases as well as a paradigm shift in transport policies so it could gain general ideas and concepts of the multi-functional use of road space. Secondly, it classifies the key functions of road space into walking path, transportation route, cultural and social place, green field and the like. Based of these functions, thirdly, it proposes proper models according to three ranks in road hierarchy and three types in urban land use, and also conducts a survey on these draft models by which it collects opinions from relevant local governments and citizens.
