More People Will Walk If Areas Around Railway Stations Are Developed

Leadership Instincts

If areas around railway stations are developed, it will lead to better use of public transport, increase in walking and cycling activities of people, according a research done at RMIT Centre for Urban Research, Australia.

The study was conducted in 230 stations across Melbourne and it was found if supermarkets, bicycle storage, parks, car parking spaces, schools, health centres, convenience stores ae well developed, more people will cycle and walk. It was found that some stations were designed to encourage walking and cycling.


The study has important implications for urban planners as cities become crowded and people find it difficult to commute to and fro for work. Transit oriented developments near railway stations can help people lead stress free and healthy lives in cities.
