Pedestrian Facility Selection Tool updated

Austroads has recently updated the Pedestrian Facility Selection Tool, designed to help Australian and New Zealand practitioners select the most appropriate type of pedestrian crossing based on walkability, safety and economic outcomes. 

Based on user feedback, the tool has been enhanced with more functionality including consideration of raised and flush medians, a new field for maintenance costs and a site inspection form.

Other updates and refinements to the tool include economic values, improved save/load function, unfeasibility reasons, visual style enhancements, crossing upgrades and new option to specify existing facility.

The tool was a finalist in the 2016 Golden Foot Awards 'Best Walking Initiative’ category and received an Association of Consulting Engineers New Zealand (ACENZ) Merit Award in 2016.
