Click the attachment to see CAWs suggestions to the Waiheke Local Board and AT on a "Self Explaining Roads" paint treatment for Titoki Rd.
This followed extensive upgrade of the road by AT from a bumpy, narrow road with no hard-engineered edges to a widened 6 metres curb and channelled road.
The "first presentation" was to public forum where the board resolved to receive an advisory memo on line paining from CAW and pass it to AT engineers. The memo was our suggested low cost/no speed bump solution to speed reduction.
Very Sadly AT engineers dismissed the suggestions even though they were supported by one of the countries leading SER experts - Hamish Makie and two qualified cycle engineers working pro bono for CAW. The Waiheke Local Board chair and transport spokesperson were unprepared to advocate for a more detained investigation. The road is now faster and more uncomfortable for cyclists. The road is within a school Travelwise zone and on the NCT extensions bid route.
The good news is that it can be repainted reasonably cheaply once the will is there.
