ViaStrada designed the internal roads for Nazareth House, a retirement village and healthcare complex in Christchurch. The brief was to create a slow speed environment where drivers felt like guests, so that elderly residents walking along or crossing the roads felt safe. The 'at-grade' or level surfaces make it very convenient and accessible for the residents to walk in and out of their homes to their unique street environment.

ViaStrada was engaged to develop the first package of concepts and scheme designs for the South Dunedin Cycle Network, providing cycle facilities with community connections that will link to a wider network suitable for cyclists of all ages and abilities.
