As the cold front sweeps across the City, over 30 built environment practitioners from across various departments braved the rain to attend another inspiring brown bag seminar, this time led by Carlos Esteves, the Deputy Head of the city's eThekwini Transportation Authority. Esteves who represents the city on a national initiative involving Polokwane, Johannesburg and Durban to promote non-motorised transport (NMT), presented the draft plan to get NMT going in the city.
His input was very well received by the professionals and a range of useful suggestions were made. Some of the interesting discussions included:
Shifting the paradigm from motor vehicles to bicycles, creating awareness campaigns around NMT, internal cycling competition for city officials to participate in, improve road by-laws to accommodate cyclists on the road and eventually create a dedicated road for NMT users.
According to Esteves these suggestions that were given during the brown bag will be integrated in the NMT draft plan. The presentation and the draft policy on the NMT will be available on the MILE website soon .
