NZTA consultation on SH1 Basin Reserve plans

Claire and I were briefed by NZTA on Basin Reserve plans. Here's our notes.

In February 2010 NZTA will start 6 weeks of formal consultation on options for the Basin Reserve: flyover, etc.
Do nothing is unlikely to be an option.
A preferred option is expected to be announced in May.
Construction is pencilled in for 2012-15.
This is part of a Road of National Significance (Levin to Airport).
Note new GPS, transport priorities etc
Project still depends on getting funding from NLTP. 

helpers wanted Dec 5 Obcycle Course

Can you lend an hour or two to help promote cycling in Wellington? CAW (Cycle Aware Wellington) is putting on an Obcycle Course this Saturday 5 December from 11am - 3pm at Odlin's Plaza by St John's bar on the waterfront.
We need volunteers to be marshalls/referees at the different stations on the course to time and judge the competitors. It will be a small, low-key, fun event. Also folks to help set up for an hour and/or pack down would be great.
Please contact Julian 021 0688 951 if you can help.
