Streetfilms: NACTO “Designing Cities” 2015

Posted by Infra on Friday, November 13th, 2015

In October, NACTO (National Association of City Transportation Officials) held their 4th annual “Designing Cities” conference with a record 650+ attendees from all over the world. This year’s event was in Austin, Texas which showcased many of the recent transportation improvements the city has done, including the new 3rd Street protected cycle track which you can see here: vimeo.com/144654729

One big highlight of 2015 was the announcement of the impending release of the “Global Street Design Guide” which is the culmination of years of NACTO research in 46 diverse cities around the globe. Much like their “Urban Street Design Guide” in the U.S. which helped change the playing field for cities and states wanting to move away from highway design manuals for re-making streets, the new guide hopes to do the same for cities across the world.

As Janette Sadik-Khan explains, “It is a new operating code for cities across the world to use in redesigning their streets, rethinking their streets and implementing safe streets that work for everyone.”
