Nominations are now open for the 2017 Bike to the Future Awards. The awards, organised by Cycling Action Network (CAN) and the NZ Transport Agency, celebrate the people and projects working tirelessly and innovatively to create a more cycle-friendly New Zealand so that more Kiwis can choose to get about by bike.
The NZ Transport Agency is encouraging Kiwis to have their say on a new approach for setting speed limits in New Zealand which puts the voice of local communities at the centre of speed management discussions.
The NZ Transport Agency is urging people to take extra care on the roads and to check for the latest conditions before travelling with more than a dozen full or partial closures in place on state highways as a result of flooding and slips.
The first Aotearoa Bike Challenge has prompted more Kiwis to cycle this summer, with participants up and down the country riding an impressive 1.3 million kilometres, or about six hundred times the length of New Zealand, since the workplace Challenge kicked off at the start of February.
The holidays are here, but we know that many of our hardworking friends in the newsgathering business will be at work while the rest of us are at the beach, so the NZ Transport Agency’s media team will be on call to help during the 2016/17 Christmas/New Year break.
The NZ Transport Agency says increasing public access in and out of Kaikoura via the inland road (route 70) is an urgent priority as crews continue working to restore the severe damage wrought by the November 14 earthquake.
