The snippet: Len Brown on swimming pools and cycling

Bike Auckland

In today’s press release about extending free access for children to swimming pools across all of Auckland, Len Brown finished with:

“We know only too well, following yet another tragedy this week, that teaching our kids to swim should be as important as teaching them to ride a bike,”

Two great policies there to support.

Of course, congratulations also go to Len and his Council supporters for clearing the next hurdle for a better transport system for Auckland – by getting the next step toward the City Rail Link tunnel funded (planning costs and some property purchases). We hope the Council shows similar vision on the Harbour Bridge walk and cycleway (which is not decided yet, as far as we can see).
