Road safety is a high priority for the government and a major focus for Waka Kotahi. Everyone should be able to get to where they’re going safely - whether they’re driving, walking, cycling, or riding a motor bike.
This project is part of our investment in safer infrastructure to support New Zealand’s Road to Zero strategy, that sets us on a path to achieve Vision Zero, an Aotearoa New Zealand where no one is killed or seriously injured on our roads. Steady progress towards this target would mean approximately 750 fewer people are killed and 5,600 less seriously injured on our roads over the next 10 years.
