Pedestrian movement and behaviour depend on plentiful factors, among which are crossing of the lane in mid- block, movement on footpaths and at unsignalized intersections. While the previous has attracted significant research exertions for decades the later, pedestrian risk has newly become subject to collective research interest. Evidence from the 2018/19 Andhra Pradesh Police Data, is considered with further geographical context data. From this impact of parking and pedestrian movement where there is an enormous exchange of traffic c all day while controlling for various urban settings, and population density were analysed. In this study the walking ability of the pedestrians on the footpath instigated due to the impact of parking and built environment was analysed. From the study, therefore parking is an essential part of an urban developers toolbox. Providing a parking lot and collection of parking fees can be useful when stopping limit is bounteous, the pedestrian moment gets nearly multiplied. Partial access to parking at side of footpaths, mid-block and, intersections can reduce the time-lapse moment of pedestrians. The main theme of this thesis is to drive a decrease in walkability index with the provision of expanding strolling separation to the pedestrians, particularly in thickly developed zones.
