Abstract

Nowadays the issues of using public spaces in cities for social interactions and other purpose can be very sensitive. One of the public spaces that have usually been use by people is the space under a flyover/bridge. Although public spaces are often designed for certain activities, existence of unplanned spaces including under flyovers and bridges could be useful for other purposes. This research attempts to review activities under flyovers initiated by its local community and aims to further identify other possible activities to be considered in developing these spaces to benefit surrounding communities. From the combination of interview, literature reviews and questionnaire survey, this research explores all the objectives stated. For this particular study, quantitative research was conducted through questionnaire surveys to the respondents that involved and have experienced in construction projects. After the data has been analyzed, this study found that it is possible to construct something under the flyover to give benefit to the people.
