Shared Use Pathway & Footpaths

  • Location | Mackay Region, QLD

Township Network Planning

Premise was engaged to plan and prioritise shared use pathway and footpath networks for townships within the Mackay Regional Council (MRC) area.

Potential projects were identified and classified as either footpath or shared use pathways through an assessment of needs process. Demand for travel between producers and attractors was estimated and converted to monthly return trips by pedestrians and bicycles using off-road paths with consideration to trip length, mode share and environment.

Prioritisation framework options were developed which considered alternative treatments, accident and incident history, environment, community connectivity, cost, and transport disadvantage.
