Guide to Traffic Management Part 7: Traffic Management in Activity Centres


Publication no: AGTM07-09 Pages: 119

Part 7 – Traffic Management in Activity Centres is concerned with the planning and management of centres typified by high levels of internal activity and interaction, especially by pedestrians.  It addresses the need to obtain a balance between providing for vehicular access and circulation and providing for pedestrian, cyclist and public transport needs without compromising the functionality of a site. This part presents the guiding principles for traffic management in activity centres, including the policy and planning context, and major considerations and processes involved.  It outlines operational and physical measures to provide for movement to and within such centres, either as part of their planning or in their day-to-day management.


A new edition of the Guide to Traffic Management Part 7 will be published in February 2015.
