A Pedestrian Access Way is a narrow strip of land providing pedestrian access to and between facilities such as a parks and roadside footpaths. It is common for example for a pedestrian access way to allow pedestrians to move between the ends of adjacent cul-de-sacs that are separated by a long distance by road.
Pedestrian access ways typically contain a footpath, and may also have public lighting.
Long narrow pedestrian access ways, especially those fenced on either side can pose security risks, and this should be considered when they are designed.
