Application of Humanized Design in Urban Road Planning and Design

1 Significance of humanized design of urban road planning


1.1 Can meet the diverse needs of urbanization road development.
With the development of cities, the development of urban roads presents diversity. Integrating humanized design into urban roads can meet people’s needs and make road design more in line with people’s immediate needs.
1.2 Solve the problem of traffic congestion in an all-round way.
At present, the number of vehicles on urban roads has increased sharply, and urban traffic congestion has become more and more serious, which has brought inconvenience to people’s travel. To alleviate this phenomenon, it is necessary to carry out scientific and humanized design of urban roads. By planning urban roads, building viaducts, and realizing vehicle diversion, traffic pressure will be greatly relieved. Improve road traffic.
1.3 Meeting the needs of urban design and urban planning.
Urban road design must first meet the overall planning of urban development. Humanized road design balances urban design and urban planning to meet the needs of the city to the greatest extent.

2 Application of humanized design in urban road planning and design


2.1 Barrier-free design of urban roads
In urban road planning and design, there are many humanized designs such as urban blind roads, barrier-free passages, and ramps, all of which reflect the city’s care for the people. In the process of barrier-free design, it is necessary to fully consider the distribution of pedestrian passages and blind passages, and at the same time fully consider the design of barrier-free exit lights, which can make the design more prominent, attract more people’s attention, and make the design more intimate and perfect.
2.2 Humanized planning and design of urban roads should strengthen road smoothness.
The humanized design should consider the overall traffic conditions of the city to ensure the safety and fast passage of vehicles, and design roads according to the characteristics of road topography and surrounding buildings to make roads, topography, and surrounding buildings more convenient. Good coordination ensures traffic function and ecological environment at the same time.
2.3 Strengthen the humanized design of sidewalks and overpasses on urban roads.
With the increase of the number of urban vehicles, the requirements for road safety are higher. When designing sidewalks, the flatness of the sidewalk should be fully considered, and the anti-skid performance of the road surface can be increased, which can not only improve the safety of the sidewalk, but also meet the needs of people of different age groups and effectively relieve traffic pressure.

3 Summary

In short, the humanized design of urban roads can meet people’s needs for urban planning, and at the same time can make urban planning more scientific and reasonable and increase the power of urban development.
