Roads are being reimagined so people can party and children can play. Red tape has been cut, thanks to New Zealand's Transport Agency, so cars can be restricted on streets for a while.

Kathryn King manages the Urban Mobility Programme at Waka Kotahi, where work is underway to make our transport system safer, healthier and more environmentally friendly. 

Kathryn King tells Kathryn Ryan Play Streets is good for communities who want to gather, and good for children who enjoy getting out in the fresh air.
