At Jobs Summit the Government proposes a $50 million cycleway the length of NZ.

"Another idea on the table is a $50 million cycleway built the length of the country.   It would provide 3700 jobs and would take two years to build.  The government is keen on it for its tourist potential."

"High level sources say Prime Minister John Key is particularly enthusiastic about the cycleway, saying it will create jobs and boost tourism."

Exciting times! CAN is seeking a meeting with the PM to discuss this idea, and how it fits with the Freeway Zero national cycling & walking network project that we are involved with.
