Local Action & Network – Paul McKay talks about Cyclovia at the Sustainable Cities Round Table, 17 March

Posted in Events, Models, Movements, SCRT Videos, Sustainable Cities Round Tables, Visions by Ferne Edwards on March 31st, 2008

Also speaking at the recent Sustainable Cities Round Table on Mobility, 17 March 2008, was Paul McKay, a Cyclovia Consultant, whose talk was titled “Cyclovia”. Cyclovia is described on http://www.cyclovia.org/ as Life to the street! The website reads: “Imagine roads with barely a car insight and people of all ages walking, cycling, rollerblading or pushing a pram. That is a Cyclovia. During a Cyclovia, cars are not allowed to drive along the selected road but are still able to cross at designated intersections. The first Cyclovia in Australia was held on 28 May 2006 in Moreland, Victoria. Over 5,000 participants attended this great day.”
