Pedestrian pavements in the pedestrian facilities manual of the Brussels Capital Region

As part of the 2010-2014 master plan for pedestrian traffic in the Brussels Capital Region, a manual has been prepared for the improvement of pedestrian facilities. The first part of this manual deals with pedestrian pavements, and BRRC was mandated to draft this part. It describes the fields of application and the specific features of laying and maintenance of the various paving materials used on pedestrian routes. The environmental aspects involved are discussed as well.

The various types of pavement investigated include:

  • concrete pavements;
  • bituminous pavements;
  • modular element pavements;
  • pavements used in green areas.
