Does your university as a body prioritise pedestrian access on campus?

According to the overall plan for the campus of National Changhua University of Education, which was deliberated and approved by our university on 14 February 2017, pedestrian walkways have been set up to match the setting of the open spaces.

The spaces that are formal or have memorial significance are presented with straight-line walkways.

The walkways in front of living areas are curved.

Pedestrian walkways take into account the actual need for links between buildings, ultimately forming an organic road network.

It has been suggested to choose materials and techniques with better permeability, such as hard red bricks, concrete bricks, and thick stones, paved by the soft foundation method.

To reflect the spirit of an ecological campus and green building, paths between flower beds with little pedestrian traffic should be reduced as much as possible to reduce road breadth and increase the permeable area.

The plan for the pedestrian traffic lines of Bao-shan Campus is shown in the following figure. The original plan for the west campus area was to establish the external connection for the student and staff dormitories with two closed-end paths. After examining the security of the two entrances and exits in the area, and considering the future needs for motor vehicle transportation and parking in the area, it is recommended to extend the two closed-end paths and connect them to form a ring road, with the road elevation being roughly at the same height as the reserved base for the existing dormitories. In this plan, motor vehicles in the area can use the school gate on Shida Road to the south of the campus as the main entrance and exit, whereas the external parking lots are located near the entrance on Shida Road.

  Baoshan Campus Pedestrian Traffic Line Planning Conception

  The main pedestrian activity area in the east campus is surrounded by teaching and administrative spaces. The square is arranged along the north–south direction of the central axis, and the main pedestrian walkway in the west campus is also in the north–south direction. The two walkways are connected by the east–west walkway. Pedestrian activity areas and walkways on the square restrict vehicle access on ordinary days, but in the case of fire or other conditions, disaster relief vehicles can get close to the outdoor space around the campus buildings.
