From spaces for cars to spaces for people: How shared space in Auckland moves us towards people-oriented spaces

Online, July 12, 1 pm PDT
Free webinar

Auckland, New Zealand has been a global pioneer in creating shared space streets in its city centre as part of a laneway circuit of shared and pedestrian spaces. The results have been positive: Traffic volumes and speeds are down and pedestrian numbers and retail sales are up. But most importantly, it has created spaces for people to linger and enjoy which were formerly simply to facilitate the movement of motor vehicles. As anywhere, there are learnings to be had and the question has to be raised: Is it time to take the next step and start turning shared streets into people streets for pedestrians and cyclists?
