Would the 20-minute neighbourhoods work for the ACT?

I read an article in The Conversation regarding the 20-minute neighbourhoods. (People love the idea of 20-minute neighbourhoods, The Conversation, 19/2/2020)

Would the 20-minute neighbourhoods work for the ACT? The answer seems to be yes.

I calculated with OpenRouteService for each town and group centre, the area no more than 20 minute distant for a normal cyclist. The green colour is 10 min and red shows the 20-minute distance. Most of the city is covered.

  • distance travelled with a “normal bike”
  • isochrone plot generated with OpenRouteService
  • data and background map from OpenStreetMap

Processing…
Success! You're on the list.
