Geelong Hospital Precinct Streetscape Audit Report

This streetscape audit is a guiding document to help improve access for all people and help shape a way-finding language for the Geelong Hospital precinct.

In the report, the principles of universal design were considered. Universal design means: design that is suitable for most users to the greatest extent possible, without the need for specialised adaptation.

A series of common design elements are referred to in the report. These include:

  • ground surfaces
  • pedestrian paths/walkways
  • tactile ground surface indicators (TGSIs)
  • pedestrian road crossings
  • vehicle crossovers/loading bays
  • parking
  • trees
  • signage and information
  • street furniture
  • art
  • staircases
  • entrances
  • bus stops
  • acoustics
  • lighting.

Appendix 1 - summarises key design criteria from the relevant Australian Standards for each design element.

Please Note: Appendix 2 includes images of intersections and audit components. It is available only in the adobe pdf version due to the large file size of the document.
