It is noted, that in the regional transport development program of St. Petersburg, pedestrian communications issues are considered only at the most general level and that the diversity of possible methods for improving them is not taken into account. The potential of architectural and urban planning and management solutions, which has been used in European urban planning practice for centuries, is underestimated. The authors substantiate the need for structural and territorial development of the pedestrian route system in the historical center of St. Petersburg. The prospects of separating traffic and pedestrian flows and active use of the intra-quarter territories` resources are regarded as issues of particular importance.
