Safe and pleasant cycling with the three P’s: Provision, Promotion and Policy

According to the ARC’s Community Perception’s Survey only 1% of Aucklanders find cycling “always safe”. The key reasons for this are: too many vehicles, speed limits that are too high, aggressive driving, and lack of provision for cycling. This document outlines Cycle Action’s recommended approach for improving cycling conditions to enable more Aucklanders to get out on their bikes.

The following initiatives have multiple benefits; including improved conditions for walking, reduced emissions from transport, less traffic congestion, and a more vibrant and liveable Auckland attracting a skilled workforce needed to create a strong regional economy.
