Living Streets Hamilton, c/- Environment Centre, 25 Ward St, Hamilton.

We have a regular monthly meeting on the second Thursday at 7pm.


Our primary aim at present is to address issues surrounding major roads in Hamilton which make routine transport-type walking unfeasible for many. We have a number of major roads with no or inadequate crossing points for pedestrians and this tends to result in people taking cars for very short trips. If better pedestrian facilities were available we believe that a lot of road congestion could be alleviated and more people would be out there walking, with all the attendant benefits. We are hoping to put our support strongly behind the walking school bus programme as school traffic is a huge contributor to peak traffic congestion in Hamilton.
We are becoming acquainted with other groups within Hamilton whose aims overlap with or complement our own, and hope to be able to act jointly with them on major pedestrian issues.

See the attached Maps for some relaxing walks in Hamilton.
