Pedestrian planning in the central area

Pedestrian circulation planning follows the same general procedures utilized in comprehensive land use and transport planning. Key steps are: reconnaissance and inventory; analysis of characteristics; demand forecasting; concept and alternative developments; and plan formulation and appraisal. This paper discusses the first three steps. It summarises salient pedestrian travel behaviour and characteristics in central Perth. It outlines two different pedestrian demand models, a density model and a gravity type model, for the noon and evening peak periods. It discusses pedestrian planning standards and principles, determines some short term circulation deficiencies, and recommends circulation improvements. The Perth central area pedestrian study, conducted for the Perth metropolitan region planning authority provided the basis for this paper. (A)
