GE.11-24825 (E)
Findings from the observations and meetings (a) Much of the downtown parking is on the street or on sidewalks; (b) Paid street-side parking is with on-site meters; (c) On some roads (in the downtown and suburbs) the sidewalks are very wide and for the most part are taken up by parked cars; (d) Parking manoeuvres (access to, and pulling in and out of spaces) are carried out on sidewalks where people walk; (e) Bicycle parking is available only in private spaces; there are no bicycle stands or shelters on city streets and at metro stations; (f) No information was provided about the parking management system: where the parking fee proceeds go or how much it costs to have on-site meters; (g) Lack of a system of impoundments or fines for illegally parked vehicles or those blocking traffic. (...) The following reflections stem from observations made during our stay in Kyiv, specifically when getting around by public transport or on foot; they therefore cannot give a comprehensive overview. (a) The sidewalks are generally well laid out and of sufficient dimensions; (b) There are a large number of pedestrians; ECE/AC.21/SC/2011/5 EUDHP1003944/7.1/SC9/5 8 GE.11-24825 (c) Underpasses have been built at the crossings of roads with heavy traffic, sometimes with shopping arcades; (d) Pedestrian crossings are numerous and complemented by very visible signs and signals, which motorists seem to heed closely; (e) Although crossing signals have pedestrian countdown displays, green lights for pedestrians do not always last very long; observance by pedestrians is apparently good; (f) Traffic signs are suspended, which means there are fewer signposts on the sidewalks; (g) Pedestrian/cyclist bridges and pathways (for strolls) in parks are used by many people; (h) The sidewalks are heavily overrun by parked private vehicles; a further increase in such parking would quickly make the situation intolerable in terms of the quality and safety of the walkways; (i) While able-bodied pedestrians are catered for, nothing has been done for persons with limited mobility and older persons, except for access ramps for the underpass stairways; (j) Notices and signs, including in the metro, are in Cyrillic characters, which many visitors are unable to read, and street signs are often lacking; (k) Signs for venues or activities are lacking and even locals find it difficult to get their bearings and must ask for help in finding meeting places. (...) Avenues worth exploring (a) Keep pathways free of obstacles (improve parking management); (b) Introduce sidewalk curb ramps when road work is carried out; (c) Improve signage: • Street signs • City maps (and public service plans) • Directions in metro stations C.
