The master’s thesis deals with the design of safer pedestrian facilities, which are mostly taken from foreign manuals and regulations, as we still do not have any pedestrian design guide in Slovenia. The focus is on three fields: the determination of the sidewalk width, the implementation of safer pedestrian crossings and the implementation of pedestrian zones. Regarding the sidewalks, a pedestrian profile, a composition of necessary sidewalk width based on the pedestrian profile and safety additions, a sidewalk width in areas with high density of pedestrians, a determination of sidewalk width considering the North American method, i.e. dividing the sidewalk into zones, and possible steps to take, where there is insufficient space, are examined. The second part presents various types and variations of pedestrian crossings, some of which are newer and more innovative and can be used to design safer pedestrian crossings. These are, to a large extent, related to traffic calming measures, which is why the discussed methods and the implementation of pedestrian crossings partly coincide with them. The last part comprises different types of pedestrian zones and the requirements of when and where to use them. Moreover, some guidelines to design more attractive pedestrian zones are given. The practical case in the end presents a reconstruction of a selected area, taking into account the foreign design manuals. In conclusion, recommendations on which procedures and methods would be best and most suitable for the use in our environment are given.
