PEDESTRIAN PRIORITY PLANNING PRINCIPLES

Despite the good intentions of all involved in the planning, design, and development of transportation infrastructure, it has generated problems. Some have contributed to international concerns about environment, health, and sustainability. Others generate significant negative impacts and impose tremendous costs on communities. In the context of transportation, the significance of the interaction between facility users and the site, space, and surface characteristics of the particular facility cannot be over-stated. The respective influences of these criteria are paramount to the safety outcomes of all users. Australia has adopted the movement of people and goods in lieu of vehicles as the fundamental transport infrastructure design and/or development criteria. Its support and implementation will require planning that considers all criteria and characteristics in a manner somewhat different to that adopted in the past.
