Imagine if … Australian cities and towns rolled out active transport campaigns similar to London and also backed it up with new, well-planned, fully funded infrastructure that helps boost peoples spirits and well-being post #COVID19Aus lockdown?
Watch Bike It, Walk It from Transport for London: when a modern progressive city like London does this, then councils across Melbourne and Victoria can too.
Major problems facing active transport in Australia are a fragmented sector, a lack of champions across organisations, government and business which has lead to a lack of political will and scarce funding.
At this time people want certainty, a road-map to the future. What needs to be done so that walking and cycling are taken to the next level?
