Universal access is the provision of equal access to all users, including persons with disability, in a fair and dignified way. This webinar will provide a summary of findings form a review of practices in relation to implementing and designing for universal access with particular focus on people with disability (universal access).
The webinar will discuss the following topics:
- Gaps in guidance relating to the accessibility of the transport network for people with disability and ways to improve practices through the provision of universal access for all.
- Performance-based concepts/strategies that may be used to enhance the design process of the transport network to achieve greater levels of universal access
- Potential provisions for longitudinal grades where topography eliminates the ability to ensure dignified and defensible access.
- Brief size review of commercially available wheeled devices against Australian Standards for accessibility of the built environment (AS 1428).
