Raising the Profile of Walking and Cycling in New Zealand

This guide, published by the Ministry of Transport, shows how the benefits of encouraging and providing for walking and cycling can improve the liveability and sustainability of New Zealand towns and cities. It discusses these benefits, provides a ‘snapshot' of the current walking and cycling picture, and considers the many initiatives that can be implemented to increase the numbers of New Zealanders using these active modes for safe and convenient transport.

Case studies of walking and cycling initiatives and practical ‘how to do it' information for regional and local government illustrate the guide.
