Pedestrian Access and Mobility Plan (PAMP) - Priority Program of Works (2013 Review)

The Pedestrian Access and Mobility Plan (PAMP) is a framework developed by the Roads and Maritime Services of NSW (RMS) to assist Councils in providing a comprehensive and integrated framework for developing coordinated, convenient and safe pedestrian networks within towns and villages.

Council’s initial PAMP was adopted in 2004. In 2010 a new PAMP was developed and this was adopted by Council in November 2010.

In preparing the 2010 PAMP, in excess of 200 community suggestions were assessed and a Priority Program of Works for the period 2011/12 to 2019/20 was determined using these assessments. This program was based on an annual program budget of approximately $200,000.

As the PAMP had been adopted three years ago, in December 2013 Council considered it an appropriate time to undertake a review of the Priority Program of Works, taking into account works that had been completed and potential changes in priorities. In addition, a recent review of Council’s cycleways and shared paths had identified possible improvements.

The review process included the following:

  • A review of the Priority Scores for uncompleted projects included in the 2010 Priority Program of Works
  • An assessment of other projects identified in the 2010 PAMP that were not high enough priorities at the time to be included in the 2010 Priority Program of Works
  • An assessment of improvements within the existing network identified during a recent review of Council’s cycleways and shared paths undertaken by Council’s Road Safety Officer.

Priority Scores for all projects, including those carried over from the old Program, were calculated using the same methodology as the old Program. In a number of cases the new scores varied from the old because of changes in the interpretation of the scoring criteria. However, this did not significantly alter the priorities of these projects.

The revised Program of Works (2013) records the works completed to date and comments are added for other projects included in the original Program, where relevant. Some projects have been deferred from the original Program of Works for reasons noted in the comments.
