Walking and Cycling Strategy Stocktake


Walking and cycling strategies are useful tools that aid councils in providing for pedestrians and cyclists. In 2005, earlier research found that 36 strategies were held by 30 different councils throughout New Zealand. A stocktake of all current walking and cycling strategies was undertaken. This revealed that there are now 61 strategies prepared by 55 different councils (out of 85).

The strategies were reviewed according to best practice principles and specifically assessed according to four key components: targets, implementation plan, financial commitment and internet availability.

The stocktake report can be found on the NZTA website or here on the ViaStrada website.
