The Kuala Lumpur Spiral Pedestrian & Cycle Link is designed to encourage sustainable mobility and improve the ecological connections in the city by linking a number of significant landmarks which are currently segregated by changes in ground level, busy highways and slip roads. The design, in particular, encourages movement of pedestrians of all state of mobility. The link demonstrate how careful consideration of play of levels and materials, inclusion of vegetation and signage as well as incorporation of rest areas and shaded seating can improve ‘city-neighbourhood’ scale relationships. It also explores how interesting features located along the route can make the journey through the link much more than just as a means for people to get to their activities and destinations.
