Auckland Cycling Programme Business Case


Flow worked with MR Cagney and Auckland Transport to deliver the Programme Business Case for Auckland's 2018-2028 cycling investment programme. Flow developed a Cycle Demand Model for Auckland which forecasts cycle trips throughout the Auckland region in response to infrastructure investment. This innovative tool was used by the PBC team to evaluate investment options, and to assess the economic benefits of the programme.


The preferred programme will see $635 million of investment providing 150 km of new cycle infrastructure distributed throughout the Auckland region. With the help of Flow's model, this new infrastructure was predicted to result in Auckland's cycle mode share more than tripling. The investment was forecast to deliver between $1.90 and $4.60 in regional benefits, for every $1 invested.
