Barbara Cuthbert (CAA) talks to David Shearer

As Aucklanders consider who they will be voting for in the upcoming October super city elections, transport is shaping up as one of the major issues.

That is why over the coming weeks on The David Shearer Show, David will be talking to a number of experts about various transport issues affecting the 1.4 million residents of New Zealand’s biggest city.

This week David talks to Barbara Cuthbert from Cycle Action Auckland.

Throughout Europe and across the developed world, cities are moving towards more bicycle-friendly cityscapes as leaders recognise the many benefits associated cycling, not only as recreational activity, but as a mode of transport.

Barbara talks about those benefits and describes, in some detail, what Auckland could look like if we followed the example of cities like Amsterdam and Copenhagen.
