In this episode, John connects with
Lennart Nout, Manager of International Strategy with Mobycon

They discuss Dutch mobility network design details and why he likes to say the “Devil is in the Details” when it comes to creating “All Ages & Abilities” active mobility networks that not only encourage users to walk, cycle, and take transit more often but also to prompt motor vehicle drivers to drive slower with patience and attentiveness.

Hi everyone! Thanks for tuning into this first episode of 2022. A couple of weeks ago I had the opportunity to connect with Lennart Nout, Manager of International Strategies, for Mobycon, a mobility systems design consulting firm based in The Netherlands.

We cover a lot of ground in this conversation including a recent protected intersection installation in Canmore in Alberta, Canada, Dutch-style protected roundabout designs, and traffic-calmed slow streets.

Enjoy the episode.
