Accessibility Mapping of Kalgoorlie

Another project with community member Jason

Recently we featured community member Jason from New South Wales, a surveyor, who is working on accessibility mapping of urban areas around the country. Jason has now completed accessibility mapping in Kalgoorlie, Western Australia.

A city official in Kalgoorlie said that the city is proud to be working with Australian-owned and operated Briometrix, who recently had their pilot team undertake an analysis and review of the user experience for anyone using wheels on footpaths across our city – including wheelchairs, prams, strollers, and other mobility aids.

Two key outcomes of the project include the development of an ‘effort map’ which will assist residents and visitors with barriers to accessibility to plan their trips around the city. It will also identify hazards, repairs, and maintenance requirements that will assist the City’s Engineering department when planning future civil works.
