Sep­a­rate cy­cle­ways

Central Leader - - NEWS -

Sadly yet an­other cy­clist has been killed on Auck­land’s roads. Such an un­nec­es­sary tragedy when over­seas cy­clists can travel in com­plete safety on sep­a­rate cy­cle­ways. When I lived in Can­berra I could cy­cle across the city without go­ing on the road.

Driver ed­u­ca­tion would go a long way to­wards re­duc­ing the risk of death for cy­clists on our roads. Also shared use paths for pedes­tri­ans and cy­clists would work well. Even mo­bil­ity scooter rid­ers would ben­e­fit from well main­tained walk­ways. An in­crease in cy­cle­ways would re­duce our traf­fic con­ges­tion and pro­vide ex­er­cise op­tions for those want­ing to get fit by cycling.
