Transport

Helping communities get from A to B is a key responsibility of local government, from making sure the buses run on time to providing car parking and walking and cycling paths. Whether public transport is the responsibility of the regional or local council depends on where you are in the country. Local councils also own 87% of New Zealand’s roads.

  • Design and construct Wānaka's network of urban cycle ways as quickly as possible.

    Reduce the community's dependence on vehicles wherever possible, providing access and equity through active modes and public transport.

  • Produce a map of transport strategy work underway and planned.

    Develop the Wānaka Airport to enable commercial ATR type aircraft routes to Wellington, Christchurch and Dunedin.

    Encourage greater use of active transport.

  • Support Active Transport proposals and ensure business case is produced urgently. We need to make walking cycling a safe alternative.

    Believe we need to investigate flexible public transport options, to reduce car use and pressure on town centre parking.

    Limited town centre parking with a growing town means we must ensure that it is available for those whom alternative options aren't practical.

  • Work with Queenstown Lakes District Council to review the use of Queenstown airport and what would happen in the event of the big earthquake.

    Aim to reduce cars in the CBD by 20% this term. Develop cycle/walkways suited to everybody, with trees alongside for shade.

    Introduce a 'light on the landscape' policy around road/infrastructure, away from vehicles running on fossil fuels. Slow down on the roads.
