What we’re doing
Making urban cycling a safer and more attractive transport choice is one of the Transport Agency’s six strategic priorities.
We are working closely with our sector partners to accelerate the delivery of cycling networks in our main urban areas. We’re also working to improve safety, and perceptions of safety, for cyclists. This includes safer networks in all our main urban centres, improving attitudes towards cycling, and building mutual respect between cyclists and other road users. The recommendations from the recent New Zealand Cycling Safety Panel report are at the heart of this work programme.
By 2019, we expect to have increased total annual cycling trips by 10 million.
