Still in Queensland, the Brisbane City Council has been presented with a Disability Access Award for implementing the Brisbane Access and Inclusion Plan. Highlights from the plan include an accessible bus and ferry fleet, platform upgrades and enhanced open spaces, accessible shopfronts and the Brisbane ‘braille trail’. The plan focussed on five priority areas: pedestrian mobility and transport, planning, development and infrastructure, public buildings – venues and outdoor spaces, caring communities and customer service and governance.
