This page relates to the 2021-24 National Land Transport Programme.
Work category 124 provides for the operation and maintenance of cycle and shared path facilities, including the operation of associated lighting.
Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency (for its own activities) maintains all cycling and shared path facilities within its designations and/or the state highway corridor (including pavement surfacing, pavement markings, sweeping, the replacement of light luminaries and electricity charges) unless agreed otherwise with the approved organisation.
Approved organisations maintain all cycling and shared path facilities outside Waka Kotahi designations and/or the state highway corridor, unless agreed otherwise with us (Waka Kotahi as investor).
It is the intention of Waka Kotahi (for its own activities) to optimise the road user experience and to minimise the cost of service delivery where possible. Therefore, Waka Kotahi (for its own activities) may, in some instances agree to take responsibility for the maintenance of cycling and shared path facilities outside its designation, or vice versa to delegate responsibility for assets within its control to an approved organisation.
A cycle path is a path physically separated from the roadway that is principally designed for and used by cyclists.
A shared path is a path physically separated from the roadway that is intended for the passage of pedestrians, cyclists, riders of mobility devices and riders of wheeled recreation devices.
