With a growing population in WA, the need for urban environments to become safer, healthier places has never been more important. By addressing the design of our streets and communities from the strategic planning levels of state or metropolitan plans, planners and other built environment professionals play an important role in improving the health of the people who live in these communities. Where public streets have been designed to serve primarily or even exclusively to private motor vehicle traffic, they can be made immensely safer for all users if they are designed to effectively serve pedestrians, public transport users, bicyclists, and other public activity.
Join Injury Matters as we chat with Ben Haddock, a future mobility lead designer from Arup, to discuss ways we can advocate for a safer WA by addressing the urban design strategies to make our environment a safer and healthier place for everyone.
