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
- signage and information
- street furniture
- bus stops
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.
