Austroads’ Pedestrian Facility Selection Tool is designed to help Australian and New Zealand practitioners select the most appropriate type of pedestrian crossing based on walkability, safety and economic outcomes.
In 2017 the economic appraisal within the tool was updated and a new save and load function added.
This webinar will provide attendees with an introduction to the tool and demonstrate how to use it with a fully worked example.
Attendees will gain an understanding of:
- the research and analytical models used to inform the tool, and;
- how to access and use the tool in an applied context.
