Safe streets for Auckland
Auckland Conversations explores Vision Zero
World renowned road safety strategist Matts-åke Belin is leading a global movement . Vision Zero is an approach to road safety that can be summarised in one sentence: no loss of life on the roads is acceptable. Auckland is facing a growing road safety challenge, with road deaths and serious injuries climbing significantly faster than population growth. Road deaths and serious injuries cost an estimated
$1.3 billion a year in social costs, which is also the estimated economic cost of congestion each year. Is there a way through to create safe, more productive roads at the same time? Dr Belin will explore why Vision Zero works, what Vision Zero in Auckland could look like, and share proven road design and engineering solutions that make roads safer and more productive.
