WEC 2019 - The why for walking transformations in our cities

November 14, 2019
Walking can be the fastest and most economical way to get around a city, and can have enormous benefits on health.

Meet Sarah Zhang, Associate Transport Planner in this video who will share how pedestrian outcomes, comfort and accessibility can be validated in the design process and resulting in successful design at the World Engineering Conference 2019.
