The Beltway Cycleway open day is being held this Saturday and is a chance for the community to discuss what they like, don’t like and what they would change about the Beltway Cycleway as well as provide feedback on the trees in the Northern Section.
The new route, which will run from Seaview through the east of the city and connect with the Hutt River Trail in Taita, is part of an $28 million dollar investment by Council and NZTA in a network of walking and cycling routes which will provide many benefits for the city.
Council’s senior project engineer Simon Cager says while the project is nearing construction it’s a good time to get feedback.
“In collaboration with the community we’ve considered a range of possible routes and designs for the Beltway Cycleway. Last year, with the communities help, we agreed on the preferred options.
“It’s important we talk with the community again about the final central and northern design to get their feedback before we begin construction.”
The community is invited to the open session on Saturday 1 December to view the central and northern design and share feedback. Drop in anytime from 11am – 3pm at the Walter Nash Centre.
