  10. 10. City development strategies •  Plan to build the “15-minute living circles”. •  Developed street design guidelines, walking and biking facilities design guidelines.
  11. 11. City development strategies •  Plan to build 2000 km non-motorized transport infrastructure, including pedestrian corridors.
  12. 12. Crash statistics 2014 2015 Change Deaths 903 868 -4% Injuries 578 455 -27% Total traffic crashes 1159 1044 -11%
  13. 13. Progress 1: Road safety inspection •  WRI and ChinaRAP conducted road safety inspection and iRAP survey on roads managed by township and district govt., and provided technical advice on the design.
  14. 14. Progress 1 •  Motorized vehicles, non-motorized vehicles and pedestrians share the space on this particular road, which creates safety risks.
  15. 15. Progress 2: Bike network design •  WRI assisted Changning District with improving the design of its bicycle network, the first of its kind in Shanghai, which include both on-street bike lanes and off-street bike paths.
