Abstract: Guidelines for Disability Access In the Pedestrian Environment Foreword These guidelines have been developed by the Department for Transport, Energy and Infrastructure’s Disability Discrimination Act Standards and Guidelines Review Group in consultation with a range of internal and external interest groups. They replace the Guidelines for Disability Access released by Transport SA in 1998. These guidelines must be read in conjunction with relevant Australian Standards, relevant guidelines and codes. Discretion and judgement should be exercised in the light of many factors which may influence the choice of facility or products to be provided. The guidelines address the ‘information gap’ that exists between the knowledge to legally accommodate those with disabilities, when constructing transport infrastructure, and the information contained in Australian Standards, Guidelines, Codes etc. This document will be reviewed periodically to ensure the most up to date information is available regarding the planning, design, construction and maintenance of disability access provisions. The DDA Standards and Guidelines Review Group wish to thank all those who have contributed to the development of this guidelines document. This document has been endorsed by the State Advisory Committee on Accessible Transport (SACAT) including representatives from: • The Department for Families and Communities o Office for the Aging o Disability and Client Services • Council on the Ageing SA • Local Government Association • SA Multicultural and Ethnic Affairs Commission • Carers SA • Access Cabs Consumer • Office of the Commissioner for Equal Opportunity • Disability Sector Representatives o Vision Impaired o Advocacy o Physical Disability o Brain Injury and Intellectual Disability o Deaf o Alzheimer’s Association o Disability Information Resource Centre
