Evaluations & Studies

To understand the views and perceptions of the trial by the precinct users two rounds of perception surveys were undertaken; before and during the trial.
Three types of independent surveys (resident, traders and street visitors) were completed by 779 survey participants.

Counts have been undertaken in South Australia since 2009. The counts were all within the City of Adelaide area and the City of Norwood, Payneham and St Peters area.
