    Urban mobility and liveable cities -webinar series

    Waka Kotahi partnered with LGNZ to deliver Urban Mobility and Liveable Cities – a webinar course for elected officials in urban areas. The course is designed to introduce some of the fundamental principles of urban mobility for safer, cleaner and healthier towns and cities. It was developed following feedback from the sector that capability building at the local governance level is a priority – to help build strategic leadership for the challenging urban transformations we’re looking to deliver over the coming decade. Sessions include guest speakers sharing their perspectives on leading change in this area.

    How to talk about urban mobility and transport shift

    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 and motivate people to act in support of these shifts.

    Safe walking and cycling treatments for intersections and crossings

    This webinar introduces 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 and demonstrating lessons learned through recent case studies of intersection/crossing treatments around New Zealand.

    Monitoring walking and cycling

    This webinar introduces the tools and techniques for monitoring walking and cycling that 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.
