As we know, the main reason for creating a pedestrian bridge on highways, busy streets, side arteries, etc. is to protect the lives of pedestrians. Unfortunately, not having this useful tool can have dire consequences for citizens.
According to the World Health Organization (WHO), 1.2 million people die in road accidents each year and about 55 million are injured, with pedestrians making up a large share of the figures. Some of these people are disabled and spend the rest of their lives with physical disabilities, conditions that bring economic damage to both families and countries. On the other hand, car accidents are the eighth leading cause of death in the world. The World Health Organization (WHO) predicts that by 2020, traffic accidents will be the third leading cause of death worldwide.
However, the presence and existence of the pedestrian bridge apart from the main case can be examined in other areas as well, including:
Use as a promotional or informational element
Traffic control and traffic
Beautification and complement of urban furniture
Reduce congestion on two co-target routes (connection to two places or urban space without the need to use a vehicle)
Reduce congestion at bus stops (when passengers are required to wait or travel on the bridge while boarding or disembarking)
