Diggers start soon on Tamaki Dr to Glen Innes – major new cycleway

Eastern Corridor

A reminder: The presentation is on tonight!

A new joint initiative between AT and the NZTA will see work begin later this year on a new cycleway to be built in stages between Tamaki Drive and Glen Innes. Whoopee !!

This is a fast tracked initiative – as soon as the Grafton Gully – Beach Rd opens in September, the construction focus will shift onto this new, highly valuable cycling link from the eastern sector from the City. It will use part of the former Eastern Corridor route, as shown in this photo.

Speakers from both organisations have agreed to attend Cycle Action’s May Committee meeting to present more details of the project, including the staging collaboration between AT and NZTA. This will be the first item and form the bulk of the meeting.

We’re in for an exciting week.

  • Janette Sadik Khan’s Aotea Centre speaking event on Monday 26th,
  • Cycle Action’s meeting on Thursday 29th.

A high level overview of the Tamaki to GI project was presented last week to the Tamaki Drive Working Group. The Group is convened by Cycle Action and AT, and has been closely involved in cycling projects on Tamaki Drive, along with creating road safety programmes like Good Bunch.

Last Tuesday’s meeting was attended by the project lead agencies, AT and NZTA, as well as Kevin Wright, (Transport Manager at Auckland Council) and Ken Baguely, (Transport Portfolio leader for the Orakei Local Board). We value Ken’s strategic work behind the scenes for this new project and hope he will join our meeting on the 29th.

Our meeting room is fairly small, but the only one available in the Central City around this date. You’ll need to book a place by emailing me – cuthash@worldnet.co.nz

Where – Ground level meeting room, Pioneer Womens’ Centre, Freyberg Square, between High St and Chancery St

When –   Presentations – 6.10pm – 7pm, Thursday, 29th May
