[Abstract]: An understanding of pedestrian characteristics is an essential role in delivering safe and effective control measures within urban environments. An appreciation of the volume and direction of pedestrian movement also provides insight into the areas of commercial and social activity and enables greater success in the planning and implementation of community infrastructure.

The aim of this study is to provide an assessment of the movement and behavioural characteristics of pedestrians within the Central Business District of Toowoomba in response to the preparation of a Master Plan for the city centre. The study provides an analysis of existing pedestrian control measures within the study area through survey of pedestrian activity at key locations along routes identified for greater pedestrian focus. The study also provides an assessment of existing car parking within the study area and recommendations for consideration in the implementation of the Master Plan.
