Guide to traffic management part 7: traffic management in activity centres

The Austroads Guide to Traffic Management has 13 parts and provides comprehensive coverage of traffic management guidance for practitioners involved in traffic engineering, road design, town planning and road safety. Part 7 – Traffic Management in Activity Centres is concerned with the planning and management of centres typified by high levels of internal activity and interaction, especially by people on foot. It addresses the need to obtain a balance between providing for vehicular access and circulation and providing for pedestrian, cyclist and public transport needs without compromising the functionality of a site. It provides guidance for planners and engineers associated with the design, development and management of a variety of activity centres. Part 7 presents the guiding principles for traffic management in activity centres, including the policy and planning context, and major considerations and processes involved. It outlines operational and physical measures to provide for movement to and within such centres, either as part of their planning or in their day-to-day management. It presents traffic management techniques and procedures that may be applied in activity centres and details their application in different kinds of centre, based on examples in practice. (a)
