Cycle lanes

'How big a part of Auckland’s transport future do you see cycle lanes being?'

The AA asked the leading candidates to become Auckland's next mayor their views:

Cycle lanes have a place in the system but only if done cheaply without disruption. $200 per/m cycleways are fine but $12000 per/m cycleways are not. Plus make better use of wide footpaths as in Ormiston for example.

Cycle lanes are an important way to encourage a behaviour change for those who have the means and capacity to travel via a bike and for health and recreation purposes. However, the biggest change needed to our transport system is creating a public transport system that supports people to be able to get right across the city efficiently and effectively without the need to be solely reliant on their car.
