Gearing up in cycling

The 2015-2018 Urban Cycleways Programme, announced last month by the Prime Minister, will see $296 million invested in 41 projects in 15 urban centres over the next three years.  This significant funding increase in cycling will help create a more user-friendly, connected cycleway network across New Zealand, encouraging more people to cycle more safely, more often.
