Film screening: Contested Streets

Wednesday, 14 March 7:15pm
Hosted by Friends of Frankston, PTUA and Frankston City Council.

Contested Streets explores the history and culture of New York City streets from preautomobile times to the present.

Central to the story is a comparison of New York to what is experienced in London, Paris and Copenhagen. Interviews and footage shot in these cities showcase how limiting automobile use in recent years has improved air quality, minimised noise pollution and enriched commercial, recreational and community interaction.

London’s congestion pricing scheme, Paris’ BRT (bus rapid transit) and Copenhagen’s bicycle and pedestrian infrastucture are all examined in depth.
