New southern cycleways – your weight needed!

Where are all the South Auckland cyclists? You are needed to help a series of new cycleway projects Auckland Transport is planning in former Manukau City. The projects are:

And here’s the key – many of these works, particularly those on Puhinui, will risk heavy resistance from local residents and businesses who hate the idea that parking may have to be removed. In the past, numerous cycle projects were cut back or cancelled outright because the public feedback was too negative – a chorus of “nobody cycles here, so why take our car parks?”

That’s where you come in. Tell them that sometimes the egg HAS to come before the chicken – and that you want better cycleways here.

If you live in these areas, or if you cycle there, please read about the projects, and submit your comments to Auckland Transport here.
