Abstract

The authors describe the design of Te Ara Mua – Future Streets, a study that evaluates the effect of retrofitting street changes at the suburb scale on multiple health, social and environmental outcomes. The study focuses on the factors that improve walking and cycling to local destinations in low-income neighbourhoods and on reducing social and health inequities experienced by Māori and Pacific people.
