The intent of this document is to provide guidance to practitioners to forecast demand for pedestrians
for new infrastructure such as:

  • footpaths or shared paths, including ‘missing links’ in an existing path network
  • unsignalised road crossings such as pedestrian refuges, zebra or wombat crossings or grade separated infrastructure, and/or
  • signalised road crossings, including mid-block pedestrian operated signals and pedestrian crossings at signalised intersections. This guidance does not consider pedestrian simulation modelling; that is, the modelling of crowd dynamics for purposes such as typical and emergency egress from train stations or sports stadiums.
