PEDESTRIAN ACCESS MOBILITY PLANS (PAMPs
PEDESTRIAN ACCESS AND MOBILITY PLAN
Together with the Roads and Maritime Services (RMS), Councils in NSW have a responsibility to provide safe, convenient and connected pedestrian routes which will encourage people to walk rather than use cars. In 1998, the RMS began a new program to assist councils in their planning for pedestrians. This program is known as PAMP – Pedestrian Access and Mobility Plan.
The Cootamundra-Gundagai Regional Council (CGRC) PAMP will align with Council’s key principles and objectives identified in the 2022 Community Strategic Plan in achieving pathway network infrastructure and maintenance that respects community expectations and needs. It will provide the framework for developing pedestrian routes or areas identified as important for walkability, safety, convenience and mobility, with a particular focus on footpaths, kerb ramps and crossing facilities at critical locations.
The CGRC PAMP will be used to guide investment in safe, convenient and connected pedestrian infrastructure. It is the key instrument for planning and building needed pedestrian infrastructure in a prioritised manner. It is essential in supporting all major pedestrian funding requests directed through Transport for NSW (TfNSW) and will ensure that all available funding sources are being used effectively to improve the pedestrian network.
