Geometric design for mobility scooters

As part of ViaStrada's work on the Pedestrian Network Guidance, our team refined work originally initiated by Palmerston North City Council into the newly approved Technical Advice Note 21-06 Horizontal geometric design for mobility scooters. Up until now, the best design guidance available was based on the needs of people in wheelchairs, however mobility scooters are larger and are becoming more popular to help people with physical impairments get around on their own. This new guidance will help road controlling authorities and their contracted designers to improve the transport environment for the many users of such scooters.
