Abstract: Following the success of many pedestrianisation schemes implemented at overseas shopping districts, Singapore began introducing pedestrianisation as a planning policy for the city-center since the mid-1980s. Its objective was to inject a greater vibrancy onto the streets, by enlivening them with stimulating sensory experiences that engage the pedestrians apart from fulfilling their utilitarian needs. Past literatures have shown that streets may become livelier through various physical and social attributes provided along the streets. The better the quality of attributes, the more satisfied pedestrians would be with their overall experience, hence are more likely to revisit the street again. However, not all of them are applicable to Singapore, given distinct locational differences. This dissertation seeks to identify the key attributes of pedestrianised streets in the context of commercial streets in Singapore, and study their contributions towards the overall satisfaction of its main stakeholders, the pedestrians. 400 respondents were asked to rate their level of satisfaction and importance of the different street attributes, as well as their overall satisfaction of the pedestrian experience. Comparing across the two locations, Clarke Quay was found to have a higher weighted Average of Satisfaction for Attributes (ASA) than HV, and also a higher mean score for each of the five categories of broad satisfactions. Using an Ordered Logistics Regression model, the three broad categories of attributes found to be significant in influencing the overall satisfaction score are Safety, Participation and Accessibility. In addition, the young were generally more satisfied than the elderly. As such, planners could perhaps consider making future pedestrianised streets more elderly friendly in order to be sustainable.
