Accessing New Zealand’s amazing walkways, cycleways and waterways

20th March 2017

Accessing New Zealand’s amazing walkways, cycleways and waterwaysWe are super excited to announce that Be. Accessible has begun working in partnership with Halberg Disability Sport Foundation and DOC to assess, map and review New Zealand’s top walkways, cycleways and waterways.
 
Be. and Halberg have purpose-built a new assessment framework, and working with Halberg’s 9 Regional Managers, will begin by assessing a sample of 135 walkways, cycleways and waterways across New Zealand. This pilot will ensure the efficacy of the framework, and ensure that the information gathered is valuable to the access citizen.
 
We’ll also be utilizing a cool new app developed by Fabriko based in Christchurch, which will have the added benefit of allowing public users to add their own personalised experiences, comments and notes.
 
We can’t wait to get started, and to help New Zealanders gain greater confidence around accessing the amazing walkways, cycleways and waterways throughout the country.
