Going Dutch

Going Dutch

I love hearing from people who’ve been to the Netherlands, especially when its a visit to one of my favourite towns, Utrecht. In this week’s programme on 3CR Val and I were joined by Melbourne City Cr Cathy Oke. Cathy was recently on a study tour of the Netherlands, along with a dozen other Australians influential in policy and practice around urban mobility.

The tour was organised by the CPF in conjunction with the Netherlands Consulate. You can read Craig Woolridge’s (Department of Transport WA) report here.
