  • Evaluation of flows along pedestrian paths adjacent to and through Darb Al-Khalil during the exit/discharge from Al-Haram, including distribution within Darb Al-Khalil
  • Assessment of pedestrian flows generated from adjacent areas
  • Confirmation of the physical dimensions of proposed pedestrian paths
  • Capacity assessment of proposed pedestrian passages and level of service
