Share the Road
We’ve created over 100 kilometres of new cycle lanes connecting our iWay commuter routes and making it safe for cyclists and motorists to use our roads.
A good cyclist will:
- Make eye contact with drivers and communicate with hand signals
- See and be seen
- Use lights at night
A safe driver will:
- Ease the pace and give cyclists space
- Look for cyclists before opening car doors, and
- Keep cycle lanes clear

TV3’s Campbell Live investigated the issues both motorists and cyclists face in New Zealand when sharing the road.
