Cyclists partnering with WDC to optimise infrastructure outcomes
I suggest that we will get the best outcomes when developing cycling and walking infrastructure if user communities are invited to partner with council during the process - especially design but also in identifying opportunities.

Partner in development of Raumanga to Onerahi path. Closed Thu 30 Oct 2014 3:09PM
Council have identified this path as a priority but I understand that the detail for much of it is yet to be developed. Cyclists and walkers could make an important contribution to design. We could make be the difference between an adequate outcome and an excellent outcome.
This could start with the Walking and Cycling reference group. We need to ensure there is adequate representation there and that information about design is shared early and input actively sought.

Interconnection between orbital locations is paramount to the general public seeing and believing they can stretch their journeys further on 2 wheels in a safe and enjoyable fashion. It opens the realms of alternative, complimentary travel.

perhaps analysis of the provisions of the loop path could be a good start - given that the path at hihiaua is narrow, documentation of it's use could contribute to more excellent provision.

This route & the funding for it was discussed at today's Cycle Reference Group meeting. Well done Myles for mentioning the requirement for grass roots input. That comment was minuted and councillors/staff are now on notice to TAKE NOTICE!

A great idea - I go too many "cycle paths " on the road (eg coming down Kamo Rd ) that peter out in dangerous places when actually used. Nice thought that they were put in but not safe to actuallly use. And there are many of them ....

Given the history of the road designs for cycling infrastructure over the past few years and in particular the handful of new intersections, it would be good to see cyclists having input to get some good design outcomes.

Spoke to Chery Mai on Saturday at the new bridge opening. She is really keen on the cycleway and appreciative of the input of cycling lobby groups. This show of community suport will push this project on quickly.
