Safer Journeys (Road Safety Strategy to 2020) Submission
Living Streets Aotearoa (PN) believes that the issues of education and walking and cycling need to be raised to the highest priority group.
We welcome this opportunity to submit on Manukau City Council’s Draft 10 year Plan.
Walking - the policy picture
A key target of the NZ Transport Strategy 2008 is that the mode share of walking and cycling should grow to 30% by 2040. This target is linked to other key NZTS targets, in particular to halve per capita greenhouse gas emissions from transport by 2040 and to reduce single occupant vehicle travel (in major urban areas on weekdays) by 10% by 2015.
