Accessible Footpath Program

Inner West Pedestrian Access and Mobility Plan (PAMP) delivery


Inner West Council is working towards making all Inner West footpaths well-maintained, level and accessible so that everyone can safely travel around their local communities.

The Inner West Pedestrian Access and Mobility Plan (PAMP), adopted by Council in November 2021, provides a comprehensive strategic action plan for improved pedestrian facilities.

The Plan includes an audit of all pedestrian facilities, identification of key pedestrian routes and prioritised pedestrian safety improvements including:

  • Footpath and pedestrian crossing maintenance
  • New and upgraded kerb ramps at intersections and other crossing points. Kerb ramp improvements are typically undertaken in association with nearby footpath renewal projects
  • Raised pedestrian crossings and other crossing improvements

A total budget of $8 million has been allocated to complete high priority works identified in the PAMP over 4 years commencing 2022-23.
Approximately $1 million in raised pedestrian crossing projects were completed in 2021-22 under Federal stimulus funding for priority school zone safety works identified in the PAMP.
