休斯敦更安全的街道第1期?"休斯敦更安全的街道 "联合政府、社区和私营部门合作伙伴


德克萨斯州休斯顿市 ?2019年4月17日 ? 休斯敦市长西尔维斯特-特纳和由领先的私营企业组成的联盟--"携手共建更安全的道路"(TSR)今天发起了 休斯敦加强街道安全第一阶段. 该举措将重点改善Gulfton附近所有道路使用者、行人、公交车乘客、自行车手和司机的安全。


尽管休斯敦对企业和新移民很有吸引力,并拥有强大的经济和高质量的生活,但休斯敦是全美道路碰撞事故和死亡事故发生率最高的城市之一。研究由 市长办公室, 学术机构社区组织 揭示了德克萨斯州人口最密集的社区Gulfton发生的高浓度车祸和险情。


休斯敦市長Sylvester Turner表示:"我們社區的安全仍然是首要任務。我很高兴能与 "携手共建更安全的道路 "及其成员公司和社区合作伙伴合作,以确保我们使休斯敦成为一个安全的地方,所有社区成员都把这座伟大的城市当作家。




  1. 社区参与; TSR将支持以社区为基础的规划工作和一个与交通相关的STEM教育项目。社区领袖和学生将与他们的邻居合作,以确定和界定道路安全问题。STEM项目将把当地的安全项目作为当地学生的学习实验室,让他们接触到工程、规划、数据和计算机科学、数据和视觉分析以及建筑等方面的职业道路。所有这些都将与市政府合作,实施安全修复。


  1. 结果的衡量。 TSR将与莱斯大学康德研究所和Brisk Synergies合作,衡量和评估项目的影响。在与休斯敦公共工程公司协商后,研究人员将对险情和碰撞事故进行前后分析--这是事故、伤害和死亡的主要指标。在Kinder以往工作的基础上,这种快速分析将使工程师在开发改进措施时获得深刻的见解,而一旦项目实施,它将使利益相关者能够快速评估它,进行调整,并为未来的项目带来经验教训。


  1. 社区改善基金; TSR will provide seed funding for the Community Engagement and Measurement pillars of the project, and the City of Houston will provide at least a five-fold match to build out the improvements. Priority infrastructure projects have been identified in Mayor Turner?s ?Gulfton Complete Communities Action Plan.? This phase 1 project will also help develop a strategy to assess future safety and mobility improvements.


?Mayor Turner, his agency staff and their community partners have laid a strong foundation to make life-saving improvements in Gulfton,? said David Braunstein, President of Together for Safer Roads. ?We are excited to catalyze real change on the streets and create models in Houston and in Gulfton that cities around the world can follow.?


“We’re very excited to be working with Mayor Turner, Together for Safer Roads and our local business and community partners to make real change on our streets,” said Anne Whitlock, founding director of Connect Community. “Gulfton is home to the city?s highest concentration of schools, and it is critically important that we all work together to ensure the safety of not only our students but the whole community. Gulfton also has the city’s highest levels of transit ridership and walking and lowest levels of car ownership, so safe, walkable streets are a need to have, not just a nice to have.”


?At Anheuser-Busch, we have an unwavering commitment to improving the communities we call home, including here in Houston where many of our 1,200 employees in the state of Texas live and work,? said Cesar Vargas, Vice President of Legal and Corporate Affairs at Anheuser-Busch. ?We are proud to support this Houston program because we believe in partnerships that can help change behaviors and make a real difference in saving lives.?


?Working with Together for Safer Roads, we?re finding new ways to improve road safety and reduce traffic deaths and injuries through Internet of Things technology and analytics,? said Chris Penrose, President, IoT Solutions at AT&T. ?We look forward to collaborating with Houston community leaders through TSR to find solutions to some of the city?s most serious road safety challenges.?


Anheuser-Busch and AT&T are founding members of Together for Safer Roads, which started in 2014 with the goal of driving solutions to address key road safety issues and help prevent traffic injuries and deaths globally. Both Anheuser-Busch and AT&T sit on the organization?s governing board along with other major global companies.
