MetadataShow full item record
A new planning concept, the activity corridor, proposes changes to the management of Greater Perth?sexisting arterial road network. This raises the challenge of how to transition from arterial roads conceivedaround a vehicular traffic function to activity corridors conceived around the principles of place-making andaccessibility by all modes. We examine the drivers for current and past design practice for arterial roads incities of the developed world. Using a Perth case study, our research evaluates existing arterial roads lookingat their physical, functional and social dimensions. Using this knowledge, we develop a management tooldesigned to guide the transition of appropriate urban arterials to activity corridors across the city region.
