The GPS on land transport and other key strategic documents for the region identify a need to increase the number of people walking and cycling / travelling by active modes.
Cycling currently plays a minor role in Auckland’s transport system relative to other large New Zealand cities and international comparator cities. International research and comparison indicate there is an opportunity for cycling to play an increased role for short-medium distance commuting trips; provide connectivity to Auckland’s Rapid Transit Network (RTN); improve transport accessibility for groups with lower levels of transport choice; and provide convenient transport choices for everyday household trips.
To support the development of the cycling network in Auckland, Auckland Transport (AT) completed the Auckland Cycling Programme Business Case (“PBC”), which outlines an agreed high-level programme for developing an Auckland wide cycling network. It was endorsed by Waka Kotahi New Zealand Transport Agency (Waka Kotahi) in 2017.
The PBC recommended cycling improvements be delivered in the following areas in the decade 2018-28. Improvements in these areas are to be progressed via the completion of Single Stage Business Cases (SSBCs).
• City Centre and Fringe
• Inner West
• Central Isthmus
• Glen Innes – Panmure
• Māngere East
• Te Atatu Peninsula
*This RFP relates to the delivery of two SSBCs: the Māngere East Cycling SSBC and the Manukau Cycling SSBC, located in Māngere East and Manukau respectively.
