35 men and 35 women were secretly timed as they walked along the designated stretch of pavement. Only adults were monitored, and the study excluded anyone walking in groups, holding a telephone conversation or struggling with shopping bags.
When the data was compiled, our fast-paced city ranked #8 on the list with 12.00 seconds to traverse the distance. Cities like Madrid and Berlin appear above us, and the top spot was grabbed by the residents of Singapore with just 10.55 seconds on average. Time to step it up people!
