Guide Information for Pedestrian Facilities

Source: Austroads

This review of research, newly published material and emerging practice has identified areas where additional advice and guidance on pedestrian facilities can be incorporated into the Austroads Guides. Greater recognition of the importance of walking from health and transport perspectives, and a greater emphasis on providing pedestrian facilities in road network planning and management, are required. The development of techniques for assessing the quality of the walking environment, and for determining the level of service provided for pedestrians, is also to be addressed. Recommendations are made for amendments to the text of relevant Austroads Guides, in particular the Guide to Traffic Management, and for the development of a comprehensive pedestrian facilities assessment tool.
