Are We Designing Our Cities To Be Walkable?

Are We Designing Our Cities To Be Walkable?

The recent plan by DBKL to encourage the culture of walking by closing Jalan Tuanku Abdul Rahman every Sunday has got us wondering about whether our cities are designed to be walkable. The walkability of a city goes beyond just having pedestrian pavements, and involves a lot more other factors. Shuhana Shamsuddin from Pereka Bandar joins us on the show to explain how good urban design is crucial in ensuring walkability for the people living in the city.
