VIC | Streets worth sharing, walking in Melbourne’s suburbs
Streets are worth sharing, whether we are walking, cycling or driving. So how do we make our streets better places?
This AITPM seminar focuses on how we can improve conditions for active transport (particularly walking). It will include the learnings and findings from the ‘Thanks for 30’ 30 km/hr speed limit trial project undertaken by the City of Yarra and Monash University Accident Research Centre (MUARC).
From Yarra, we will hear from Project Manger Jzanelle Cook. From MUARC we hear from Professor Brian Fildes. Brian has a PhD in Psychology and qualifications in Science and Engineering.
Duane Burtt from Victoria Walks will give context about why facilitating safer and higher amenity streets is important. Duane recently co-authored a study which examined walking in Melbourne’s suburbs with a focus on the role of walking and access to suburban shopping centres.
Before the speakers there will be an opportunity for networking over afternoon tea.
