Abstract Remit

The NZ Transport Agency recently announced that New Plymouth and Hastings will collectively receive funding of $7.28m to become New Zealand's first walking and cycling model communities.

The purpose of this investment is to help create an environment that will make walking and cycling easy transport choices for people in New Plymouth and Hastings. Through this funding we’re also encouraging councils to integrate walking and cycling into their transport planning and other initiatives.
