Support using existing beach road width as shared zone, use savings to achieve appropriate widths on raumanga branch Closed Wed 15 Oct 2014 10:08PM
We may have a battle on our hands to get 3m paths, this would be one way of getting some savings, a shared zone on beach road could offer a high level of service using existing pavement if done well

"Naked streets" a much better outcome in this area! It has high pedestrian and cycling traffic, camping and boat launching - due to the awesome coastal environment. Slow vehicles to 20kph by installation art\furniture - enhancing the space :-)

More major infrastructure work on beach road, following the strengthening seems counterproductive - I think it's a great idea to share that space and have it as a more complete destination/recreation area.

As stated Beach Road is narrow and used by many vehicles especially on weekends, many towing boat trailers. Not much width for shared road idea. Prefer a designated track for cyclists and walkers

The new loop is disappointingly too narrow . It is great to see it used so much but it is a tedious ride having to ask people to move every 50 meters or so . I think this proposal would be a good compromise.
