How can we create vibrant and liveable new urban centres? Walkability is a key element as we strive for places that people want to be. Using Cockburn Central as a case study, let’s examine how can create a great walking environment while addressing regional traffic congestion and car/pedestrian conflict.

Spend a morning with international walking expert Rodney Tolley and local academic Dr Paula Hooper unpacking Cockburn Central for what it can teach us when it comes to creating liveable town centres. Cockburn Central is a developing regional centre built around a train station and a freeway interchange which aims to come the most influential activity centre in the southern corridor by 2031.
