Safer Journeys for motorcycling on New Zealand roads is a deliverable of the Safer Journeys Third Action Plan 2016-2020 (external link) . The second edition guide provides road controlling authorities (RCAs) and contractors with guidance on improving and maintaining roads for better motorcycling safety outcomes, and is intended to help RCAs in planning for the 2018-21 National Land Transport Programme (NLTP).
Updates in the second edition of the guide include:
The guide references maps recently released by ACC that align popular motorcycle routes with network risk, using a usage survey of motorcyclists and motorcycle crash data. The Transport Agency will work with RCAs to prioritise investment on roads that are identified as high-risk routes.
An existing resource, Making roads motorcycle friendly, is attached as a supplement to the guide.
