Abstract

Natural disasters have underscored the need both to better plan and manage
regional road traffic associated with mass evacuations and to plan and
manage pedestrian evacuation routes away from buildings to safe havens.
In Australia, the state of the art for evacuation planning is the NSW State
Emergency Service (SES)’s Hawkesbury Nepean Flood Plan which utilises
the Timeline Evacuation Model together with agent-based evacuation
models and the Life Safety Model. Whereas evacuation route modelling by
car is well advanced practical applications of pedestrian route evacuation
models remain limited. This research project reviews the alternative ways
of modelling pedestrian route evacuation and aims to develop a simple
prototype mathematical model for application. In this paper, a brief outline
of the GIS-based model is presented and future research is outlined.
