Cycling Safety Panel report 2014

We established the independent Cycling Safety Panel following the 2013 coronial review of cycle safety to develop practical and innovative recommendations for how central and local government can work together to make cycling a safer transport option.

The panel worked closely with cycling advocacy groups, transport organisations, local authorities and relevant central government agencies in developing its recommendations. The recommendations covered new and innovative solutions for infrastructure, education, network user behaviour, regulation and enforcement.

The report represented New Zealand’s first comprehensive and rigorous analysis of how to improve the safety of people who cycle in our urban and rural areas.

Cycling safety action plan: making cycling safer and more attractive

In 2015 we developed an action plan outlining how we’re delivering on the Cycling Safety Panel’s many recommendations. These were included in our work to make cycling a safer and more attractive transport choice, encouraging uptake of cycling and improving safety for people who cycle.

A progress report on the action plan was published in April 2017 and a second, final progress report was published in December 2018.
