We’re packing in the blog for a couple of weeks so we can take off for the beach and countryside for the great Kiwi summer holiday! We end the year with a feeling of huge satisfaction – it has been a watershed year with major cycling projects underway and close on the horizon; Grafton Gully Cycleway, improvements to the Northwestern Cycleway and the Harbour Bridge SkyPath on track for support from key Council agencies.
Add to these the impressive series of Local Board projects planned across Auckland – from Orakei, through Waitemata (Central Auckland), out to Puketapapa (Mt Roskill and Owairaka), across on the Shore (Kaipatiki Local Board) and over in the west along the Whau River, and you get the picture that change is on its way! And I almost forget Kim Sinclair’s Tamaki Trail!
On top of all of this we have new strong relationships across the transport sector and increasing awareness within the community of the advantages of cycling for transport, relaxation and sport. Thank you for all for supporting the blog – for giving us your comments (and filling out the reader survey!) and spreading the message to your Facebook friends.
We wish you a relaxed and fulfilling holiday with lots of magic cycling with friends and family, and look forward to returning to you in the new year. See you again from Monday 7th January, 2013.
