We all desire to be good parents, and one of the most common regrets is not having taken the time to do it better. The Molonglo Valley has come a long way since 2004, but will take as long again to complete. Those born in 2004 are likely to have children themselves before it is complete.
Scooters have become the symbol of a modern metropolis. Scooters are not new, we all had one as children, just the way they are being used is. Without room in the city for cars, and reliance on public transport, a scooter provides an easy way to hop around the city and cover short distances. Canberra is a bit different, and scooters are welcoming people, who have never cycled before, to active travel .
The introduction of intelligent street signs has slowed cars travelling 12 km/h faster than the speed limit on local streets and past schools. The signs are a reminder of the rules of the road and not speed cameras. The idea: instead of speed enforcement we learn through a social cue.
Clear words for clear goals: making Active Travel meaningful. A post inspired by an email we sent to Shane Rattenbury on 24 February 2020 relating to the ACT Climate Change Strategy 2019-25.
