We’ve set aside $1.85m in this Long Term Plan for maintaining and making safety improvements to the existing on and off-road cycle routes, and projects we’ve committed to. Safe cycling routes for school kids has been the key priority in developing our cycle network, particularly when more heavy vehicles are moving on our roads. In 2017 we investigated the feasibility for an off-road pathway along the Taruheru River to Campion College but need to consider how we pay for it. Do you agree with our preferred option?
Thanks for your feedback. Submissions closed Friday 20 April.
Hearings on the submissions will be held 14-16 May.
Build it as soon as possible. Commit $2.4M (1/3 of the cost) from Council budget in order to access outside funds more easily and get it done.
Bring it forward and do it sooner. I think this will have a bigger impact on the community than say the Olympic Pool. The track will CHANGE the way people commute and move around the city; the Olympic Pool whilst it is in need of love, will not CHANGE the community. It will just be a better version of what we have. I would prefer to see the funds go to the cycleway instead and bring it forward.

I totally support the provision of Cycleways throughout the City and District. To see the great use of the existing cycleways/walkways from a wide cross section of our communities is very encouraging. Their use can only increase and I believe worth investing in.
