A long-awaited shared walk/cycleway between Petone and Wellington is a step closer.
Associate Transport Minister Julie Anne Genter will today unveil designs for public consultation on the Ngauranga to Petone shared walking and cycling pathway.
What I like about this cycleway is the following:
- Separate from traffic
- Spacious, so room for runners and walker also
- Doesn’t destroy car parks
The price is huge at $76 million, but I’d rather have an expensive well designed cycleway, that one which is dangerous and destroys local businesses.
Also this will be a major connector between Lower Hutt and Wellington. It should get a lot of use.
