Media Release 18 December 2014

Living Streets Aotearoa welcomes the final report of the Cycling Safety Panel, with a Government commitment to fund $100 million of improvements for cyclists and a focus on safe speeds.

We are keen to see better cyclist facilities on-road to keep the footpaths safe for pedestrians. There were 41 pedestrian deaths on New Zealand roads to November this year and we look forward to the government urgently addressing the human toll of these shocking statistics.
