Roger Blakeley - Essentials of a 21st Century Transport System

 Registration is closed for this event

The outcome of “Let’s Get Wellington Moving” is expected soon. This timely presentation will discuss essentials of a 21stCentury transport strategy. It will start with Jan Gehl’s philosophy of "Cities are for people, not cars". That means great walking, cycling, e-bikes, e-scooters, and public transport. Wellington needs light rail, integrated with the bus network. Our bus fleet can be 100% electric by 2030. Digital urban mobility, including car sharing and autonomous vehicles, will see private car ownership drop radically within 2 decades. Wellington can achieve zero carbon emissions from transport by 2040. Wellington will truely be a “city for people”.


Dr Roger Blakeley is a Greater Wellington Regional Councillor and elected member of the Capital and Coast District Health Board. He was Chief Planning Officer, Auckland ‘SuperCity’ Council; Chief Executive, Porirua City Council; Chief Executive, Department of Internal Affairs; and Chief Executive, Ministry for the Environment.

The views that Dr Blakeley will be discussing are his personal and professional opinions, not the views of Greater Wellington Regional Council.
