Safe Streets

Poskod Talks

The aspiration for Singapore to be a more livable city is strong in the hearts of many residents and non-motorized movement through the city such as cycling and walking appears to be key in realizing that vision. 

Sparked by an accident at Circuit Road at Macpherson Estate involving a young boy on a bicycle and lorry, the #betterSG team were driven to make a contribution and in conjunction with Archifest 2012, launched “Safe Streets”.

 

Taking the format of a design thinking workshop, engagement sessions with the local residents it hopes to explore further on what it takes to create streets that are safer, more livable and respectful which contributes to the overall well-being of the community at Macpherson.

The #betterSG team is currently working with various partners to prototype the ideas discovered in these sessions and hopes to unveil it in 2013.
