Hutt Cycleways to get big boost

with one comment

The HCC will bump up its spending on cycleways by $200,000 to $350,000 per annum.

This is an acknowledgement of strong public support for improved cycling facilities in surveys and as part of the LTCCP.

A priority for 2009/2010 budget will be work on a River Trail cycleway between Manor Park and Silverstream. At present cyclists are forced to dice with motorised traffic on the highway at tht point.

$10,000 will also be set aside as the Hutts contribution to a detailed investigation of the Great Harbour Way, a proposed 5 metre cycleway/walkway running from Red Rocks in Wellington, all the way around the harbour to Burdons Gate at Eastbourne.
