dc.description.abstract During December (2007), Cape Town’s peak tourism season, a pilot pedestrianisation project was run in the City of Cape Town. The 300 year old Greenmarket Square was pedestrianised and stakeholders on the square were surveyed six months after the implementation of the scheme to access the economic benefits, as well as the perception of predestination by the traders. A SATURN dynamic assignment model was used to simulate the effect of certain road closures to traffic as part of an extension to the pedestrian network. These road are vital to start forming a formalise pedestrian network within the CBD. From the results, a pedestrian network for the Cape Town CBD has been proposed. en_ZA
