Can someone explain why "ned ad" is necessary? Could it just be "ned" or "ad"?

If you walk down getting out of the street you'd say " vi går ned af gaden", otherwise if you walk on the street following the way through the street you say "vi går ned ad gaden". In another sentence with"ad" from this section a dane explain incredibly well when to use "af" and "ad".

I see, but that doesn't reply their question and I have the same one. Why is it "ned AD" and not just "ned"?

I have the same question! Why is "ad" necessary?
