Footpath & Shared Path Asset Management Plan

Footpath and Shared Path Asset Management Plan 2016

Knox City Council is responsible for managing approximately 1,220km of footpaths and 89km of shared paths across the municipality. This pathway network assists in delivering sustainable transport options and providing connectivity across the Knox municipality. In addition to this, the network also supports a number of other services provided by Council.

Council's original Footpath and Shared Path Asset Management Plan was completed in 2005 and was the first Asset Management Plan Council developed. This Footpath and Shared Path Asset Management Plan is a review and update of the previous plan, ensuring Council continues to have a sound asset management framework that responds to the influence of broader Council objectives.

Specifically, the Footpath and Shared Path Asset Management Plan:

  • Presents the recent history of footpath and shared path management practices within Knox;
  • Describes the current situation regarding footpaths and shared paths;
  • Details the level of service Council intends to deliver in relation to footpaths and shared paths;
  • Provides a transparent picture of Council's procedures and practices in managing footpaths and shared paths; and
  • Identifies opportunities to improve footpath and shared path management.

The recommendations outlined in the plan have been made to assist Council in:

  • Continual improvement of asset management practices;
  • Understanding community expectations and service levels;
  • Reaching a sustainable level of funding for pathway assets; and
  • Advancing asset decision tools and information systems to facilitate service planning integration, data management and efficient work practices.

The Plan comprises a main report and several attachments. To view the main report (and the included attachments) go to the relevant link at the bottom of this page.
