Pedestrian facilities manual of the Brussels Capital Region

The pedestrian facilities manual of the Brussels Capital Region offers technical support to all actors involved in the improvement of road infrastructure and the promotion of walking in Brussels.

To be able to travel, pedestrians need high-quality infrastructure that is comfortable, attractive, safe, and accessible to all. The quality of a pedestrian facility determines the success or failure of its use.

At the request of Brussels Mobility, BRRC has investigated three topics that are closely affect the quality of facilities: pavements, lighting, and accessibility for pedestrians.

Part 1 Revêtements des aménagements piétons aims to give recommendations – based among other things on the needs of users – for the design, construction and maintenance of pavements with a view to creating high-quality pedestrian facilities.

Part 2 L'éclairage des aménagements piétons tends to give recommendations for the choice and installation of lighting with a view to creating high-quality pedestrian facilities.

Part 4 Cahier de l'accessibilité piétonne presents in detail all the directives to be met in each project for the (re)development of public space in Brussels.

These documents are also available in hard copy (only in French or Dutch). They can be ordered directly from:
