The Government is developing a package of rule changes collectively referred to as Accessible Streets that aims to increase the safety and accessibility of our footpaths and streets and encourage active modes of transport.

Consultation on Accessible Streets is subject to Cabinet approval, and we expect consultation to be held in early 2020.

More information will be available on this site, and submissions will be invited through an online survey hosted by Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency.

If you would like to stay updated about the consultation, please email NZ Transport Agency at
