The car can provide flexibility for many journeys but can also be inefficient, requiring parking space and creating congestion, especially at peak times.
The implementation of a cycling network would increase the carrying capacity of our roads while improving our health and environment. By encouraging people to use active modes such as cycling, we reduce the congestion for other road users.
Implementing cycleways in Wellington has its challenges because we are retrofitting them into established streets. The city’s narrow and winding streets mean that some road and/or footpath space must be reallocated. This may ultimately mean prioritising cycle lanes or cycle parking over on-street car parking in some areas.
The network will span the city with routes connecting suburbs to the CBD and is currently planned to be rolled out over the next decade.
