The Te Manawa ō Owhatiura trial aims to create child-friendly streets that allow all people to move safely around our community. The trial project is the first of it's kind in Rotorua, and will change the way people drive, walk, bike or scooter through the area on their way to school, work, or the Whakarewarewa Forest.

Tell us about your experience of the trial project, by taking part in the survey. We want to know what parts of the design you think are working well, and what parts could be improved. Adjustments will be made to the design during the trial period, based on community feedback. You can also place feedback by emailing cycling@rotorualc.nz. See any project updates or adjustments to the trial layout here.

A working group consisting of students, staff and parents from Lynmore Primary School, local residents, members of Tatau Pounamu and Rotorua Cycle Action and the New Zealand Police are leading this mahi. Rotorua Lakes Council are supporting the working group to manage the project.

Project funding

90% of the project costs are funded by Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency’s Innovating Streets for People fund, with Rotorua Lakes Council funding the remaining 10%. The project is estimated to be around $100,000.
