SANDOVAL CHAVEZ, Diego Adiel et al. Pedestrianization from the systemic-sustainable perspective and the quality of radial accessibility of Parque Central in Juárez, México. RIDE. Rev. Iberoam. Investig. Desarro. Educ [online]. 2022, vol.12, n.24, e06.  Epub 23-Mayo-2022. ISSN 2007-7467.

Pedestrianization is a key factor for sustainable cities. In the case of Ciudad Juarez, Mexico, there are serious shortcomings in urban infrastructure and poor civic practices that affect the mobility of people on foot to public space. The objective of this work is to evaluate radial accessibility taking an urban park as a reference. The research adopts a direct observation method on radial routes considering a healthy adult. The data analysis was based on a systemic view that distinguishes between random variability and assignable variability adopting Poisson distribution and a subsequent criticality analysis. The study was conducted in the built environment within an 800 m radius of Parque Central located in Juarez. Six routes were evaluated by identifying and recording fixed and non-fixed obstacles that impeded or restricted walking traffic. Results revealed the prevalence of five high criticality obstacles affecting pedestrian walkability and, consequently, the quality of radial accessibility of the park. Three of these obstacles were associated with the condition of the sidewalks and the remaining two with the condition of the streets. Management scenarios to address this issue are analyzed and their relevance is discussed. Finally, it is concluded that the approach used is relevant to the study of the quality of radial accessibility of the park and a research agenda for future work is suggested.
