Abstract

The evolution of cities must not ignore the needs of specific population groups that need more help. In this way, urban development (such as the definition of SUMP) must consider the aspect of accessibility also through a participatory comparison with population groups that more than others can testify to their impediments during normal travel activities in the city. The research has focused on the calibration of a questionnaire and on the administration to a selected sample of users with motor disabilities by investigating, through the Likert judgement scales, the criticalities related to 3 elements present in urban spaces near road intersections: the sidewalk, the ramp and the traffic light. Through a statistical analysis, the judgements of two different groups of people with disabilities (wheelchair and walking stick/walker) have been compared and it was possible to compare the critical points, arriving at some useful considerations for the mitigation of impacts This work lays the foundations for a more in-depth investigation and the possible application of a transversal analysis to the same sample in the coming months, useful to evaluate how the vision of the problem has changed and at the same time to provide local administrations with some tools to evaluate the procedures for the removal of architectural barriers related to the elements analysed.
