‘Open Streets Main Road’ Car-Free Event | Sunday 1 October

Open Streets Main Road builds on a local programme inspired by Colombia’s Ciclovía. The concept is to close down a street temporarily so that it becomes CAR-FREE.

Open Streets suspends reality and allows us to imagine a new “normal” for our streets.
