Cycling in Gisborne contributes to improving transport options, particularly for those without a vehicle, providing a more efficient and integrated transport network, and improving health, economic and social outcomes.
The Gisborne District Council, together with the NZ Transport Agency, will further develop a dedicated walking and cycling network around and across Gisborne that provides safe connections between schools, recreation areas, business centres and residential areas.
The Urban Cycleways Fund has accelerated the completion of the Wainui-CBD route, including improved cycle facilities on both the state highway and the local road network.
This project has delivered safer and more connected facilities for people cycling to the Gisborne CBD, separating users from heavy commercial vehicles along the main corridor into town. It will encourage more students to travel by bike and will also encourage more residents to cycle to work and for recreational and short utility trips.
