Evaluation of community roads by surrounding residents in Hiroshima

This paper aims to evaluate community roads which have been completed since 1983 in Hiroshima and to obtain necessary information for the purpose of developing more community roads. As a result, all of them are favored by the majority of surrounding residents even though the extent of evaluation is different by each road, but further development of the roads in front of their houses is less favored than that of existing roads. The reason seems to be depending on the special situation of each residential area. We can find similar evaluations for the road by school children in an elementary school adjoining their new community road who were specially participated in our survey. It is also confirmed that community road is effective in reducing traffic speed based on a pre and post traffic survey.
