Urban&Public worked with GHD in the detailed study and analysis of connectivity in the regional city of Orange and out to surrounding areas, for the development of their first ever Active Travel Plan. This strategic document aimed to guide the implementation and maintenance of active travel infrastructure, programs and the encouragement of greater participation in active transport options.
The Plan has been developed to go beyond the standard Bike Plan as required by Transport for NSW to include streamlined delivery and a higher degree of usability for Council staff and the community.
The plan focuses on deliverables that empower the user, including:
— Project assessment tool
— Service level zoning maps
— Typical details
— Detailed project plans
— Wayfinding templates
— Education programs
— Community communication tools such as social media, printable online content and active travel information packs
— Infrastructure planning, including end of trip and mid trip amenity, paths and connections
The team prepared a full website feedback form using ‘Bang the Table’ to garner feedback from the general public about cycling and walking for active transport.
