The Active Travel Plan was designed to replace the existing Orange Bike Plan and the Pedestrian Access and Mobility Plan (PAMP).
It included strategic planning of user needs, identifying key routes and linkages, typical details, scoring tools to prioritise specific walking and riding infrastructure projects and cost schedules.
The plan also included promotion, encouragement tools and a wayfinding signage strategy, to assist in the provision of consistent wayfinding throughout the network.
Consultation was an embedded part of the process which included workshops, surveys, online comment portals meeting with key stakeholders and government departments.
The final product was a high quality kit of parts including prioritised schedule of costed works. This provided Council, the community and Council staff the tools to choose which projects should be given priority, to apply for funding and then delivery.
Many elements of the Active Travel Plan have subsequently been built as part of the Orange Cycling Town Project.
