Cyclists have their say on Road Safety Strategy


The Government is renewing the national road safety strategy, replacing the 2010 strategy with one that will operate until 2020. The Ministry of Transport is holding initial consultation meetings with stakeholders before issuing a discussion document for public comment. CAN, along with BikeNZ, met with MoT officials on 13 May to highlight key safety issues affecting cyclists.

The timetable from here is:

  • late July/early August 2009 - discussion document released for public comment
  • December 2009 - strategy finalised and released

CAN groups and members will be invited to submit on the discussion document. CAN will provide suggestions for submissions on this website, publicising it via e.CAN.
