In the next year CERA should
1. Make incorporating good access routes into the central city for cyclists and pedestrians a priority in the new plan for central Christchurch..
2. For the new subdivisions to be built in Christchurch, land should be reserved for green corridors that support recreational and commuting (cycling and walking) routes.
3. Identify properties in Christchurch which have been targeted for demolition in other areas of Christchurch were a they could improve the existing network.
4. In Spring, reinstate cycle ways removed immediately after the February earthquake - eg. Clarence road. Make a celebration of the return of the cycle ways and announce the commitment to make Christchurch a cycle friendly city.
Over the next three to five years CERA should
1. Link up existing cycleway sections to provide continuous routes that link into the cycle access routes into the central city. The cycle routes should be highly visible and easy for the public, whether or not they are currently cyclists or not to identify. They should be also easy for people to follow, because they are signed and do not have 'gaps'.
2. Get cyclists who live in the local area to help design where cycle routes go.
3. Get the community involved in designing and building recreational routes all over Christchurch that provide a variety of opportunities, including for walking, running and mountain biking
