The Department of Transport released the Victorian Pedestrian Access Strategy in September 2010 setting out the Victorian Government’s vision for a more pedestrian-friendly transport system for Victorians. The aim of the strategy is to encourage more Victorians to walk, especially for short trips.  Infrastructure, planning and design, safety and behaviour change programs are included in the strategy which sets out broad policy principles and the first septs to guide the Victorian Government’s investment in walking over the next 10 years.  More people walking has the potential to help ease congestion, reduce greenhouse emissions, improve the health of Victorians and promote social connections.
