Please help us complete the final stage of Tahitai, connecting the central city to eastern suburbs.
Cycle Wellington supports this project. Please submit and indicate your support. WCC are facing organised headwinds, so it's vital we speak up for an attractive and safe bike route.
The most important thing you can do is take a couple of minutes to make a submission and say you support this project.
Do it before 5pm Tuesday 12 October. Submission extended! New closing date 5pm Thursday 14 October.
If you have longer, here's things that we feel need addressing:
Help out boaties and beach visitors
We want a more proactive plan from Wellington City Council to mitigate the reduction in on-street parking. There's lots of parking capacity at the marina, which is Council-owned land.
Protect the bike path
There needs to be more physical segregation from the roadway, to stop vehicles parking on the path. Standard curbs are inadequate to stop many of today's heavy vehicles. We would hope there is also a continuation of some of the great treatments from the Cobham Drive path. Bollards or similar may be needed in some locations.
Connect to Hataitai
There's missing connections to Hataitai. We want provision for getting to and from the new cycling path to Belvedere and Rata Roads.
Make the footpath more comfortable
The footpath shouldn't be hard concrete. Making a more comfortable surface for walking and running will help keep the bike path clear.
