Elections 2014 - Which Party supports walking?

: 19 Aug 2014

The Green Party has topped the polls while National has failed to register according to NZ's pedestrian advocacy organisation Living Streets Aotearoa (LSA).

 

LSA recently asked each party represented in the current Parliament 7 questions to find out which parties would do things to make life better for pedestrians.

 

Andy Smith, President of LSA, says the responses were quite revealing with the Green Party clearly out in front while the Maori Party also showed a strong commitment to making walking more convenient, appealing and safer.

: 23 Jul 2014

Media release from Living Streets Aotearoa

The Board of Inquiry decision on the Basin Bridge flyover has made the only sensible choice for a project with no pedestrian benefits despite its position adjacent to three of the largest secondary schools in Wellington and one of the most walkable parts of Wellington. The Basin Reserve needs to be easier to walk around and cross the roads to encourage people to enjoy this great Wellington spot.
