Item 5 11.30am Active Modes Infrastructure Group (AMIG):  The journey so far and the challenges ahead

Walking and cycling (the Active Modes) are an increasingly important component of the mode mix across the transport network.

The Government Policy Statement on Land Transport and the NZ Transport Agency policy setting acknowledges this priority and is very enabling towards supporting councils making our towns and cities more walking and cycling friendly. Additionally the Safer Journeys strategy, looks to “achieve a reduction in the crash risk for pedestrians and particularly cyclists, while at the same time encouraging an increase in use of these modes through safer roading infrastructure”.

The Active Mode Infrastructure Group followed the established model for the sector in responding to changing needs by working together collaboratively to put best practice into the hands of practitioners, and ensure interventions are delivered consistently across the network.

AMIG has overseen and sought to coordinate the responses to a substantial shift in the attitude to providing for urban mobility, and is now the technical reference group for addressing the gaps in guidelines and in the regulatory framework in providing for not only the active modes, but the many innovative personal transport devices that are increasingly looking to occupy the same space.

New Road Safety Strategy

The MoT are leading a development of a new road safety strategy for NZ, founded on a clear ambition to reduce the trauma on our roads. Last year, more than one person a day was killed in road crashes. This level of trauma is neither inevitable nor acceptable, and it is clear a new approach is needed

The new road safety strategy will outline how we will approach the road safety challenges of the next decade and hold ourselves to account to save lives and meaningfully reduce trauma.

James Campbell will outline the Ministry’s work to date and provide context ahead of public consultation in mid-2019.
