There was a great turnout at the 2WALKandCYCLE conference last week in Auckland! There were some very inspirational speakers, Gil Penazola for example delighted with us the 8 80 Cities and encouragement to hold Open Streets (a day where some streets are closed to motor traffic) creating instant ‘pop-up parks’. Safer speeds, or as one speaker called them ‘sensible speeds’, were a common theme and there was plenty of discussion and support for creating lower speed zones around schools (not just the frontage road) and residential areas. The NZ Transport Agency Cycling Network Guidance website was launched at the conference and Abley are proud to have been involved in developing this guidance website, it will be a great tool for the industry.
