2018 Australian Urban Design Awards: Winner of Leadership, Advocacy and Research – City and Regional Scale

Level Crossing Removal Authority Urban Design Framework by Level Crossing Removal Authority

Jury citation:

What sets this piece of work apart is its application of well-understood urban design principles to what would typically be treated as simply civil and transport infrastructure. At the scale at which the level crossings exist, it might have been easy to treat each one as an exercise in separating traffic. Instead, the development of the framework demonstrates both leadership and a commitment to achieving more from the exercise.

Applying a planning and design-led approach that embraces multidisciplinary collaboration to improve the safety of at-grade level crossings has and will continue to result in adding value to the locations adjacent to this infrastructure. The adoption of this approach is also important in the context of establishing procurement practices that promote multi-purpose outcomes that will benefit not only the users of the transport networks, but also the communities through which they pass.
