  • Background

    6 months ago

    We are committed to providing long term planning for pedestrian access and mobility to
    promote cycling and walking as desirable transport modes for short trips and to link public transport services and community facilities.

    Pedestrians form the largest single road user group. Most individual trips, regardless of the type of transport used, begin and / or finish with a walk section, making walking a major element of all travel.

    To improve the safety, convenience, connectivity, and accessibility of pedestrian routes in the Manly area, namely across the Manly Wharf, Manly Beach and Manly Town Centre area, we have engaged consultants, Bitzios Consulting to prepare a Pedestrian Access and Mobility Plan (PAMP).

    A PAMP is a comprehensive strategic action plan to develop pedestrian policies and plan for the provision
    of pedestrian facilities, it aims to:
    • improve pedestrian linkages with major destinations such as transport interchanges, shops, and schools; and
    • provide safe and convenient pedestrian facilities that cater for the needs of all pedestrians.
    We conducted a preliminary inspection of some of the key pedestrian routes in the study during February, to give us an indication of some of the existing pedestrian and mobility issues to be addressed.

    These routes were selected based on a prioritisation system, which considered the following criteria:
    proximity to pedestrian trip attractors and generators; concerns from community feedback;
    location of pedestrian accidents; and road hierarchy: routes close to major roads and pedestrian generators (e.g. The Corso, Belgrave Street) were prioritised.

    The information from this survey will be used to identify areas of concern and inform recommendations for
    improvements to pedestrian facilities.
