Cycling corridors identified The Wellington City Council is inviting locals to have their say when it comes to possible cycling and walking routes in the eastern suburbs. A working group created by the council have now identified and prioritised eight potential cycling corridors along Wellington’s eastern suburbs - with the key areas being considered Kilbirnie to Miramar, and Kilbirnie to Seatoun. Possible route options for Kilbirnie to Miramar are a ‘Cobham option’, which would be routed along Rongotai Rd and across Cobham Dr, as well as a ‘Hobart option’, which would run down Rongotai Rd, Coutts St, under the airport via the subway, and along Hobart St. For Kilbirnie to Seatoun, the group was considering two options. A ‘Broadway option’ would run along Rongotai Rd, Coutts St, under the airport via the subway, and along Broadway and Dundas St. The second, the ‘Strathavon option’, would follow the same route until after the airport, where it would then run along streets to Strathmore Park, Broadway and Ludlam St. Members of the public were now invited to share their thoughts on which options were preferred.

group, before coming up before the transport and urban development committee in June. “Councillors will then make decisions based on community feedback before we do the detailed design work.” Residents will have another opportunity to provide feedback in October and November on the details of the routes, and the council plans to have the project completed by mid-2018. The Wellington City Council has allocated $6 million towards developing a safe cycle network in the eastern suburbs as part of investing $34.7 million in cycling in Wellington over three years. The investment in the eastern suburbs is a combination of local share from Wellington City Council, the New Zealand Transport Agency from the National Land Transport Fund, and an additional boost from the Government’s Urban Cycleways Fund. The Government’s contribution is two-thirds of the $6 million cost for routes in the eastern suburbs through the Urban Cycleways Fund and National Land Transport Fund. Wellington City Council’s budgeted share will be $2 million. Residents are invited to have their say at public drop-in sessions which will take place at the ASB Sports Centre in Kilbirnie on Wednesday, May 4 from 4.30pm to 7.30pm and on Saturday, May 7 from 9am to 3pm, or at cycleways.wellington.gov.nz.
