Summary This thesis examined how perceptions of neighbourhood safety and objective measures of the local road environment were related to physical activity among youth. Results demonstrated that neighbourhoods with walking tracks and traffic-calming measures promote active transport (walking/cycling) and may help stem age-related declines in physical activity among children and adolescents.
