There areĀ  hopes newly-approved Auckland cycleway extensions will provide safety for city commuters.

Plans for more than $300 million in funding was endorsed by the Auckland Council yesterday.

Bike Auckland Chair Tony Mitchell told Kate Hawkesby when you look at major cities like London and Paris - it's clear people don't get on their bikes unless it's safe to do so.

He says the main issue with cycleways in the super city is a lack of safety, and people are dying while trying to commute.
