Radburn, a planned community inspired by England’s Garden Cities, emphasized common areas, like this walkway and park, and allocated a minimal amount of land to individual homes. While walkways may have had some environmental impact by encouraging residents to walk for local travel, the narrow motor ways in the community have had difficulty accommodating modern families who often own more than one vehicle. This photograph shows a motor way crossing over a walkway.
