Will our school children get home healthy and safe?

: 1 May 2017

Work Safe is promising adults to 'get you home healthy and safe', but little is being done for children who walk or cycle to school.  Lucinda Rees from NZ School Speeds says the Government is irresponsible, as there are no consistent rules in place to get school children home 'healthy and safe' and is calling on them to put rules place to protect our most vulnerable road users.

More walking needed for the Government Policy Statement on Transport

: 31 Mar 2017

Living Streets Aotearoa submission on the Government Policy Statement on Transport asks for some significant changes to the Policy that determines the funding for the New Zealand land transport system. The proposed GPS continues years of non-funding for walking and pedestrian activity with a heavy bias towards state highway funding. Our submission recommends the focus for the New Zealand transport system must be people-centred to support a healthy life and sustainable activity for all.
