Enhancing the quality of life for all Queensland communities


In 2017, the IPWEAQ Board endorsed a discussion paper prepared by the 2018 President's Award winner, John Derbyshire for the development of a new technical publication for the design and planning of streets to succeed Complete Streets

A Steering Committee was established and subsequently two Working Groups for Planning and Detailed Design and Standards. The draft of the new publication was launched at the 2019 IPWEAQ Annual Conference in Brisbane, 22-24 October. This event also marked the start of the industry consultation phase of the project. The opportunity to provide feedback will remain open until 17 January 2020. To contribute to this process, please click on the “Get Involved” button to the right.
