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 that were formerly used to simply facilitate the movement of motor vehicles. As with 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? Learn more in this webinar, led by Auckland Transport's Darren Davis.
