Auckland Transport have started consultation on cycling networks for the inner west of the isthmus which is being funded as part of the governments urban cycleway funding.
A bit like they did with the Glen Innes consultation, AT are asking about what people want to see for the whole network rather than just one route. It doesn’t mean the whole network will be built in one go but is useful to ensure they get all aspects considered. The proposed network they show is what they expect to build over the next 10 years.
I’m not an expert in the area but from what I do know the routes look pretty good and I know Patrick in particular will be happy to see Ponsonby Rd on there as he has written about that a lot. Of course the key will be the quality of the facilities proposed and how long it will be till they’re implemented over the next 10 years.
Here are the other pages in the consultation which give more information on why it is being done.
As well as the brochure to residents and online consultation, AT list two events where people can talk about the plan
Bubs on Bikes – Grey Lynn Park (next to the playground and paddling pool) – Sunday 13 and 20 March 2016 from 10am – 1pm.
Pasifika Festival – Western Springs Reserve – Saturday 12 and Sunday 13 March. AT will be providing valet bike parking so why not cycle to the Pasifika Festival and enjoy a premium parking experience?
