New-look cycleways programme

Council - NZTA review

Wellington City Council and the New Zealand Transport Agency have been working together to deliver a practical and achievable new-look cycling programme for Wellington.

This was in response to the Transport Agency-commissioned independent review (1.3MB PDF) of the Council’s cycleways programme by consultants Morrison Low.

The revised cycling programme was unanimously approved by Councillors at a Transport and Urban Development Committee meeting on 11 August 2016.
