NZTA move ahead with Ngauranga – Petone Cycleway

NZTA have announced that they are taking the investigation of the Ngauranga-Petone Cycleway to the next stage, calling for tenders for project investigation in early 2013.

This follows Cyclist Survey which included an online survey and focus groups, to determine demand for the cycleway. “76% said that the ability to use a dedicated, off-road cycleway would make them more likely to cycle”

While this is still a long way from “fixing the gap”, it’s good news that this key part of Te Aranui o Pōneke is being addressed.
