Analyzing their relation through correlation method and size grade based on the performed studies of urban conditions improvement are considered among important criteria of assessing the quality of urban pavements access for handicapped. This study is analytical-descriptive in regard of objective and is considered among applied research type. Data collecting method is field and documentary method. This study tries to collect data using field method and address the existing obstacles and problems in pavements around Kerman Parastar Blvd. and Shafa Streets which prevent from handicapped presence and the results obtained from the study show that comparing the existing status of the mentioned pavements based on influence of the urban planning standards, the left side pavement of Shafa St. has the highest rank for handicapped traffic.
