Creating vibrant towns and cities webinar series

Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency and the Transportation Group are hosting a series of free webinars focused on creating vibrant towns and cities.

How to talk about urban mobility and transport shift

April 2020

This webinar provides a theoretically driven, evidence-led framework so we can understand how to:

  • improve people’s understanding, based on best evidence, of why a shift in transport modalities away from cars and towards active and public transport is needed
  • help people designing and leading the shift to have better conversations with the public
  • motivate people to act in support of these shifts.

This webinar aims to introduce some of the current state-of-the-art thinking around these safety measures for our active modes. Learning objectives include:

  • Understanding the safety effects of different intersection/crossing measures for walking and cycling
  • Learning what safety measures are now more easily available for implementation via the Transport Agency’s Standard safety interventions toolkit and Innovating Streets programme
  • Demonstrating lessons learned through recent case studies of intersection/crossing treatments around New Zealand.

Monitoring walking and cycling

The tools and techniques for monitoring walking and cycling are rapidly evolving. Many councils still rely on basic counting technologies or manual methods, but these methods can have high error rates or collection durations that are insufficient for year-on-year trend analysis. Join us to hear more about the current thinking around monitoring active modes.
