This summer, DESTL's Centre de gestion des déplacements (CGD) team will be crisscrossing Saint-Laurent (residential and industrial) to assess the safe active pedestrian potential (SAPP).
Researchers with Montreal's public health department have established a grid for identifying and analyzing characteristics that are favourable, or unfavourable, for pedestrians in a neighbourhood or on a thoroughfare or a section of a street. The SAPP study is a tool that will help fill an information deficit on the local built environment in connection with active mobility.
With the accurate data it provides, the SAPP helps identify sites that require action to improve pedestrian comfort and safety in the short and medium term.
