To ensure that pedestrian journeys are a safe and convenient option for all members of our community, Living Streets call for best practice pedestrian infrastructure in all our public spaces to be funded, improved and accessible. “Accepted best practice” should be the minimum, not an aspiration, and all public spaces should be pedestrian-friendly.
The first significant pedestrian improvements for Wellington were announced during the Summit. With work due to start soon, Living Streets Aotearoa and Summit participants are excited for what’s next.
Presentations from the New Zealand Walking Summit will be available on video and can be found at https://www.livingstreets.org.
