Abstract: Developments and changes in transportation systems caused disharmony in urban patterns in general while they have resulted in rapid access opportunities, because both pedestrian and vehicle needs have equally been imposed on existing of urban patterns. Different countries have different approaches for designing the circulation system in the cities depending on their socio-economic structures and political systems. In the developed countries pedestrians are not neglected, on the contrary, they are considered as much as vehicles. Opposed to this, in the developing countries, the pedestrian needs are ignored with respect to security, comfort, convenience, aesthetic, and continuity aspects. Particularly, the disabled are effected heavily from this ignorance. The aim of this study is to develop an optimisation of design criteria for safe pedestrian crossings that link pedestrian areas; and to test these criteria though made a design projects on Adana. The methodology used in the study consists of three steps: Theoretical, analytical, and pragmatical. Theoretical step consists of literature survey, analytical step includes analysis of the selected problem areas as pedestrian crossing, and finally pragmatic step proposes a way of problem system for the pedestrian crossings on D-400 National road in Adana. In this respect, Türkkuşu Junction was selected which has the high volume both vehicle and pedestrian for design.
