Abstract

In the context of sustainable urban development, the promotion of alternative means of transport is essential. Assuming that in the Algerian context, that pedestrian mobility is discouraged by the state of the urban space. We want to discover how to encourage pedestrian eco-mobility, how this mobility is influenced by the physical characteristics of the urban environment. For this, we investigate the resident population in several neighbourhoods of the Algerian capital via a survey to establish the link between mobility behaviour, opinions and socio-economic characteristics. This work tries to put under the light through the case of the Algerian cities, the means to promote and manage the pedestrian mobility by the register of the visual sensory of the urban frame. This work tries to have as an implication the promotion of the pedestrian sustainable mobility to improve the health of the inhabitants, to develop the urbanity of our cities and to moderate the use of motorized transport means strongly polluting for the environment and economically viable.
