The Principle

Tasmanians for Proper Footpaths hold as a general principle that whithersoever a person may lawfully travel by motor vehicle a person should also be able to travel by foot or wheelchair or other small, personal conveyance just as readily.
Pathways—suitable for foot-traffic and wheelchairs—should be provided as a matter of equity besides (or conveniently near) every highway and major public road. Such pathways would provide residents and visitors safe, undemanding and, haply, pleasant walks between Tasmania’s cities and towns, with straightforward acceſs to tourist attractions.
It is, surely, ridiculous that people can perambulate easily through Tasmania’s national and State parks on specially constructed, wooden walkways but they cannot travel to those same parks by way of decent footpaths.

currently, even when plenty of room exists for footpaths . . .
