Minister Bridges meets us in Auckland

: 13 Feb 2016

On Friday Feb 12 we meet with the Minister of Transport Simon Bridges in Auckland.  There were 8 in our delegation representing organisation concerned that the footpath should not get crowded out with new vehicles.  Just that day NZ Post talked about their new delivery tractors going nation wide.

The meeting was good and one of our focus points was asking the Minister to make the NZTA Pedestrian Planning and Design Guide adopted as a standard.

Following is our briefing paper.

: 15 Nov 2015

Today we remember the thirty New Zealanders killed while out walking in the last 12 months, to mark the World Day of Remembrance for Road Traffic Victims. The theme this year ‘Its time to remember – say no to road crime’. 

Pedestrian deaths make up 10% of the 287 people who have lost their lives on New Zealand roads in the last 12 months, with Waikato, Auckland and Canterbury the most deadly places to be on the road.
