Austroads’ review of the pedestrian planning and design guidance in the Guide to Traffic Management (AGTM) and Guide to Road Design (AGRD) identified a total of 120 planning and design gaps. Recommended changes to the AGTM were published in April 2020 followed by a series of exceptionally popular webinars.
Recommended changes to the AGRD have been reviewed and approved by the Road Design Task Force and will find their way into the AGRD as part of its update and restructure planned by the Road Safety & Design program in FY20-21.
This is the first session in the series of webinars to step practitioners through the updated pedestrian planning and design information. It presents how to ensure pedestrians are catered for appropriately in road cross sections, and where to find that information in the Austroads guides.
The webinar is presented by Ann-Marie Head and Jeanette Ward and covers the following key topics:
- cross section development considerations for walking
- methods of allocating space to walking
- design of footpaths and shared paths
- best practice examples.
The handout material can be downloaded from the supporting documents tab after logging in.
