Total km's of separated cycleways in NZ

Rod Badcock made this Official Information request to New Zealand Transport Agency

The request was successful.

From: Rod Badcock

Dear New Zealand Transport Agency,

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

Dear Official Correspondence,

Thankyou for the response - and the clarification on not having data on continuous separated cycleway lengths. Maybe this could be an important future metric to help planning?

Yours sincerely,

Rod Badcock

The request seems to have been refused Rod?

It's showing currently as 'successful'.

Also would add that a lot of those 'cycle paths' on the gis map that they link to are just plain old roads with no allowance made for cyclists whatsoever.
