The Department of Infrastructure, Planning and Environment will examine the justification for a specific pedestrian facility on Larapinta Drive at the Diarama Village based on a survey of pedestrian and vehicle numbers through the area and meetings with affected parties.

There are good practice guidelines and Australian Standards for the installation of pedestrian facilities. These standards ensure an equitable treatment for pedestrians is applied throughout the road network in Alice Springs and other roads in the Northern Territory.
