Comments on the GHW

“Combining the glorious views of our harbour with the heathy exercise of walking, running or cycling makes this a terrific way to explore Wellington for locals and visitors alike. The complementary network of ferries, buses and trains mean short trips and long journeys can both be catered for with minimal environmental impact” -Celia Wade-Brown (Wellington City Mayor)

“United Future Leader Peter Dunne, as the local MP, is also working with Cycle Aware Wellington and the Hutt Rotary Club to promote ‘The Great Harbour Way’, a unique and iconic cycling/walking route around Wellington Habour. “ – United Future Policy Statement, October 2008

“I’m very supportive of the Great Harbour Way concept. As someone who cycles regularly from the Hutt Valley to Wellington City I’m well aware of the safety issues associated with the current route and believe that urgent attention needs to be given to addressing these issues. ” – Chris Hipkins, Rimutaka MP

“A safe coastal running track offers marvellous opportunities for our Road Runners– Geoff Henry, Athletics Wellington

“As once of the most frequent users of the Petone to Wellington section of the road (on a bike) I am very supportive of change in this area. As well as being a great idea for recreational fun and visitors, it would also encourage more people on to their bikes for commuting – as it will make the ride safer and much more enjoyable” – Trevor Mallard, Hutt South MP
