The Stonnington Glenferrie Road/High Street trial mobility map is an online resource available to all community members who use a mobility device and want to understand the most convenient and safe routes when travelling through the Glenferrie Road and High Street shopping precincts.

In 2022, the City of Stonnington secured funding through the Transport Accident Commission Small Grants Program: Enhancing Inclusive Disability Services - to develop an innovative community-based project that would deliver positive change to the lives of Victorians living with a disability.

The funding made it possible, with the help of mobility mapping specialists Briometrix, to map pedestrian movements and assess footpaths along Glenferrie Road and High Street, Malvern and develop a mobility map of the busy shopping precinct.

Using wheelchair-mounted sensors, the Briometrix team mapped the footpath gradient, surface material, pavement width, obstructions and potential trip hazards to community members using a wheelchair, motorised mobility scooter, walker, crutches or pram.

The data was turned into area-specific maps showing the most convenient and safe routes for people using mobility devices or pushing a pram along Glenferrie Road and High Street. The map also highlights public facilities such as toilets, car parks and accessible business entrances.

The map shows the level of effort needed to travel along the footpath for someone using a mobility device. The effort-based rating considers gradient, surface material, footpath width, obstructions and potential trip hazards.

The map also shows the locations of accessible facilities, such as:

  • toilets
  • changing Places
  • accessible parking
  • business entrances.
