What is a PAMP?

    PAMPs are developed through partnerships between state and local governments to coordinate investment in safe, convenient and coherent pedestrian infrastructure on key pedestrian routes.  

    A PAMP forms a comprehensive strategic and action plan to develop pedestrian policies and build pedestrian facilities.

    The aim of the PAMP is to improve pedestrian safety, mobility and access to
    local shops, schools, community facilities and neighbourhoods.

    How will the PAMP benefit the community?

    The PAMP aims to provide wide transportation, environmental and social benefits to the community, such as:
    • more appropriate pedestrian facilities, particularly in busy areas;
    • safe and convenient crossing opportunities on major roads;
    • reduced injuries to pedestrians;
    • promotion of walking for pleasure and health;
    • links with other transport services;
    • improved access for mobility impaired users, including older persons; and
    • infrastructure suitable for wheelchairs, walking aids, mobility scooters, guide dogs, prams and bicycles.

    Who is a pedestrian?

    As well as people walking, the definition of 'pedestrian' also includes:
    • a person driving a motorised wheelchair that cannot travel over 10km per hour (on level ground)
    • a person in a non-motorised wheelchair
    • a person pushing a motorised or non-motorised wheelchair
    • a person in or on a wheeled recreational device or wheeled toy.
