Wellington is proud to be a compact, vibrant city – that’s why we’re rolling out an ambitious plan to make it safer and easier for people to get around in climate-friendly ways.
In partnership with mana whenua, we’re creating a city-wide bike network, alongside bus and walking improvements, while recognising and celebrating hidden awa and other sites of cultural significance in our city.
Wellingtonians have called for action on climate change and transport. We’re excited to be supporting the health and wellbeing of all the people who live, work, and play in Wellington by getting on with innovative, people centred, street change.
Counting Active Modes seems like pretty futuristic stuff, but we’ve been in the game since 1998. Back then, we were called Reveal, and we developed the world’s first computer vision people counting system. We’ve been growing and innovating ever since.
It all started with curiosity. One question: ‘How many?’ But as time passed, we realised ‘how many’ was just the start. More questions developed, like ‘Why is that?’ ‘Can we fix this?’ ‘Who’s using this?’ ‘Is this safe?’ And, finally, ‘How can we make this space better?’ Our curiosity grew, and our technology grew with it.
Using our edge AI-powered sensors combined with local support and robust maintenance plans, we provided precise data-driven insights to support the sustained development of capital and operational programs to enhance pedestrian and cycling growth in New Zealand.
With Countculture, it’s easy to see the bigger picture.
Boffa Miskell works across New Zealand on projects ranging from shared paths and pedestrian-focused placemaking in Auckland’s bustling City Centre, to consulting on mountain bike and hiking trails in the most remote parts of the South Island.
Much of what we do is centred around connecting communities; bringing people together with their neighbours and with nature. We believe that providing opportunities for cycling, scootering, walking and running supports a more sustainable lifestyle; enhancing the well-being of Aotearoa’s people and the places we call home. And let’s face it – moving around outside is a lot more fun than sitting in traffic.
