Transport and Urban Planning for People

BY JULIE ANNE GENTER
@ PKN_AKL_SPECIAL EDITION ON MAR 28, 2014

As Julie Anne Genter — a Green Party member of New Zealand parliament — says, people need to get around the city, but there aren’t many choices. Cars take up a lot of space, create congestion, cost a lot of money, and make cities more dangerous for pedestrians and cyclists. Julie is working to implement people-oriented infrastructure, and remove outdated planning rules to make Auckland more efficient, liveable for its citizens.
