Step by Step: EASST Safe Crossings Initiative

Step by Step: EASST Safe Crossing Initiative implements small-scale pedestrian infrastructure interventions for high impact. Transforming unsafe roads into safe, accessible, and liveable public spaces.

Our interventions take a people-centred approach to mobility and street design and have been proven to reduce the risk of pedestrian casualties.

Based on international best practice our projects hold to standards that often go above and beyond those of local regulations, demonstrating the impact that high-quality, targeted upgrades can have on guiding good behaviour and enabling people to make safe decisions.

Safe and accessible crossings serve the travel needs of all road users as well as improving walkability, reducing car and fuel dependency, and supporting people to be more active.
