UCT’s African Centre for Cities and the Cape Town Partnership hosted a great talk by the transportation and planning commissioners of New York City. Their talk was part of a larger ITDP-organized visit to South Africa. I thoroughly enjoyed Commissioner Janette Sadik-Khan’s remarks (an audio recording of which is available here). In spite of some vocal critics, her extensive implementation of bike and pedestrian improvements in New York has successfully improved traffic safety and Manhattan’s streetscape.
