Cycle Summit Video – Auckland Transport

In this video from the Cycle Summit, we have Matthew Rednall, manager of Auckland Transport’s Community Transport section – talking about how cycling is part of the Auckland Plan, and what kind of investment we will be able to see in the coming years from Auckland Transport.

Of particular interest is that the updated Auckland Cycle Network – formerly known as the Regional Cycle Network – will receive a hierarchy, ranking up from “feeders” to “collectors” to “cycle highways”. The approach of course is loaned from how we already prioritise roads, and we think it is a useful step, because it will provide indication that not all routes are equal (in quality or importance), and allow a more useful discussion and prioritisation where we spend our money more effectively.

From around 2:50 of the video, you even get an early shot of the proposed network!
