Christchurch’s Cycle Design Guidelines

30 08 2013

It gives hope that we are going to end up with quality, safe cycle infrastructure in New Zealand cities.

Now central government should come to the party, wind back the wasteful spending on its RoNS monstrosities and fund quality bike infrastructure in every decent sized town and city in the country. If it takes a change of government next year then that’s what it takes. Read the document, and if its what you want in your town too, then spread the word and help chuck out Messrs Key, Brownlee and Joyce. Vote for a party that is going to help make it happen.
