“This field trip is the final chapter in the construction of the Waterview Connection in Auckland, a $1.5 billion roading project and New Zealand's biggest. You will see how cycling has been integrated into the project from an early stage. What you learn may reveal opportunities to influence planning in your own local area and to make cycling safer and more fun wherever you live.”
