Healthy Streets delivered a multi-day package of public talks, media engagements, meetings with key agencies and a training programme for a mixed group of transport policy makers, planners, economists, engineers and health professionals. The training programme gave us a comprehensive and in-depth understanding of the breadth of the Healthy Streets Approach and the skills needed to apply a new approach to city planning. We were especially impressed by Lucy’s appropriate use of international case studies throughout the programme and the new insights to street design that were highlighted during our Street Audit exercise. We referred extensively to the Healthy Streets Approach in the development of our long-term national transport masterplan and the concept of the Healthy Streets Indicators has inspired new conversations in the media and with our citizens.Singapore Land Transport Authority
