Achieving this will require a change in the way we design, manage and operate our streets and transport networks.
Our streets need to better reflect the role they play in making up a large part of our public space and in shaping Auckland's character and the way we live.
At the same time, it's important to acknowledge that moving a large numbers of people, goods and services along some key corridors is important for Auckland's economic success. This means a good balance must be struck between transport and place functions.
Allocating space for vehicles, cyclists, pedestrians, and amenities such as street furniture and trees, is a challenge. This challenge will increase as our population grows.
