Total km's of separated cycleways in NZ

Rod Badcock made this Official Information request to Ministry of Transport

Response to this request is long overdue. By law Ministry of Transport should have responded by now (details and exceptions). You can complain to the Ombudsman.

From: Rod Badcock

Dear Ministry of Transport,

The opposition party transport policy statement is quoted as saying:
"National proposes that in areas where separated cycleways exist, cyclists must use them or else they will receive a fine" Chris Bishop MP, 15/12/2019

Can you please clarify three items:
a) How many km's of *separated* cycleways exist in NZ (not shared paths, or on road cycleways)?
b) What is the average continuous length of a separated cycleway in NZ?
c) Listed by major urban city (Auckland, Wellington, Christchurch), how many km's of separated cycleway exist for each?

Yours faithfully,

Rod Badcock
