More people – fewer cars.
When cities prioritise the movement of people over cars, the whole city is enriched.
Delft in Holland redesigned Papsouwselaan which was a 50 m wide post-war arterial, and created:
- One car lane each direction
- Dedicated bus/tramway
- Loading zone
- Four rows of street trees
- TWO bidirectional cycle tracks
Whitehorse Rd is 60m wide between Nelson Rd and the Box Hill Town Hall.
Imagine the benefits to the people living in, and visiting, Box Hill if this kind of treatment was included in plans for the future.
