The Heart Foundation has released the results of a survey, titled “What Australia Wants“, which is to live locally in walkable neighbourhoods, and to redirect road funding to walking, cycling, and public transport.
The report is 118 pages long. Notable results include clear support for:
- active neighbourhoods
- redirecting road funding to infrastructure for active transport
- reducing speed limits
Streets Alive Yarra congratulates the Heart Foundation for conducting the research and publishing the results. We support the analysis and conclusions; and urge local and state governments to allocate funding that reflects the clear community preference for safer streets that encourage walking and cycling.
