What do you want for your city? Long Term Plan now open for consultation


Tauranga Cycle Plan

The Draft Cycle Plan shows how we propose to build safe, connected cycleways to give people more travel options in Tauranga.

The cycleways will include networks of separated bike lanes, shared pathways, traffic calming and safer intersections. We want to make Tauranga safer and easier for people to ride bikes.

The Draft Cycle Plan summary

The council’s draft Long Term Plan allocates $12M towards the general implementation of the Cycle Plan over the next three years. We’re proposing that those funds should go toward planning and building cycleways in two areas where there’s great potential to get lots of people riding bikes quickly. These areas are:

  1. Mount Maunganui to Arataki, and 
  2. Central city to Greerton.

Success in those areas will create momentum as we move to other areas of the city. Meanwhile we’re planning lots of other projects to make biking safer around the city. The Long Term Plan allocates additional funding to many other projects that support the Cycle Plan, things like the Ngatai Road separated cycleway and the Domain Road upgrades. See these and other projects listed under ‘already planned’ on the Cycle Plan map.
