Quality of Life survey acknowledges Wellington's walkability

The Quality of Life survey, made public today, asked residents in 12 cities to rank their lives in areas including health, crime and safety, and public transport. Wellington came out on top, with just under 95 per cent of Wellingtonians ranking theirs as either extremely good or good, making Wellington the No 1 city. The survey reports Wellingtonians believe it is generally a safe place to live. The city topped the list for people feeling safe after nightfall while in their homes, visiting the city centre, and walking in their neighbourhood.

Living Streets Wellington is supporting World Car-Free Day on September 22nd 2008

This annual global event, organised by the World Car-free Network, encourages people in more than 1,5000 cities to change to socially and environmentally sustainable methods of transport.

Persuasive evidence about the storm and drought impacts of Climate Change, caused partly by rising greenhouse gases from transport, coupled with the obesity epidemic, make this day even more relevant in 2008.

Great Harbour Way needs political commitment NOW

Celia Wade-Brown says "Let's look at the Great Harbour Way and plan for its implementation sooner than later."

A wide scenic route from Wellington to Hutt would be terrific for recreation and commuting.

It's shameful that tourists coming off the ferry from South Island can't cycle or walk along our magnificent harbour in either direction.

Wellington has a lovely waterfront and Petone's foreshore is attractive but there is an ABYSS between.
