Bike Newtown

Primary tabs

In July 2017 WCC started looking at options for the Southern Cycle Route through Newtown.

Take action for cycling
Have your say on the Island Bay cycleway. Do it today. Here's our handy guide to the options.

Here’s the 30-second version:

  • Option C is best (with some design detail to ensure it doesn’t feel like a shared path)
  • Options B and D are OK (but both compromise cycling or walking)
  • Option A is rubbish.

We’ll be ranking C, B, D as our favourites in order.
