Cycling and walking
The Annual Plan does not include any clear provision for implementing the walking and cycling plans.
There are a number of important regional initiatives that need to be moved forward - the Great Harbour Way, the round Porirua Harbour walkway/cycleway, Porirua to Wellington walking and cycling routes, a regional route through the Hutt, etc.
There should also be a project for working with NZTA and councils to ensure that all their roading projects make adequate provision for walking and cycling.
CAW recommends that GW starts investing in carrying cycles on public transport, with an initial group of buses fitted with racks to use on specified services to places like the Makara Peak mountain bike park, Brooklyn hill and Khandallah.
We also urge GW to find a solution for carrying bicycles on trains at both peak and off-peak times.
CAW are keen to help advertise these services.
