Create a convenient path network

Typical situation is when pedestrian paths are inconvenient and people start walking on the grass and making desire paths

This can be fixed by planning road network carefully, thinking about pedestrian needs. In this case they will keep to paved roads

Marketing advantage

Caring for pedestrian comfort can be advertised as a feature of your project

Solving a common beautification problem can promote your project among rivals

Save money on construction

Kilometers of anti-pedestrian fences cost a lot

This money can be saved if road network is correctly planned

Save money on services

Fixing spoiled lawns and repairing desire path requires repeated spendings

No paths to be fixed if pedestrians never walk on lawns

We will help you plan a good road network!

Using computer modelling algorithms we will predict the places in your project where desire paths will appear

We may find mistakes in your public space project. Will show you places where pedestrians will stomp the grass and spoil the beautification

We will send you a report with all mistakes listed, together with explanations and photos of similar places

We may build a road network from scratch. We will make it comfortable for pedestrians and optimal for construction, without any surplus roads

We may create several variants with different positions of key locations

Our suggestions are based on scientific researches of pedestrian psychology

We may do extra analysis: isochrone maps, pedestrian flow heatmaps, optimal places for street crossings

Such analysis may be used, for example, for choosing optimal location with good pedestrian flow for commercial services

Our services

Finding mistakes

We process your area plan and find places where pedestrians will walk on grass

Report includes:

  • Pedestrian simulation results with all predicted desire path locations
  • Explanations of individual mistakes and recommendations for fixing
  • Photos of similar locations from already existing places

Time: 2-3 working days (depending on area size)

Price: 100$ + 40$ per each Ha of square

Free for public non-profit organizations

Free calculation of a small demo area - up to 5 Ha, with lower precision. You will see our report and decide if you like it and wish to order more detailed one


Designing from scratch

We create entire pedestrian road network for your project from scratch

Report includes:

  • Road plan in vector format
  • Description of basic ideas behind the plan

Time: 3-5 working days

Price: on request, depending on area size and available data, about 400$ for a 5 Ha area

Doing everything yourself

You perform pedestrian modelling all by yourself in our free modelling software

We can provide assistance on preparing the data or interpreting the results for extra price

Time: depends on you

Price: using our software is free, paid assistance and support are available on request

Examples of work

Please check our blog (in Russian) for examples of simulation for various yard and park projects:

... and there are many more.

Using the recommendations of the algorithm (the scheme in the middle) designers could have avoided design flaws which turned lawns into mud marshes, as can be seen in the photo to the right.

Lectures and seminars

on the design of convenient pedestrian networks

We enjoy sharing our experience and talking about proper design of path networks.

During a 1.5-hour lecture we can tell you about general principles, most common problems in pedestrian network planning and ways to avoid them..

This will help students avoid most common problems and make much more comfortable parks and courtyards..

Please contact us at info@antroadplanner.ru if you are interested!
