I am the one who mapped the footway in the link above. And not just from the 
aerial imagery, but also on my bike to gather the street names. People actually 
do walk there, on the grassy strip between the roadway and the houses. You're 
not supposed to walk on the asphalt road surface. Otherwise you're likely to be 
run over.
