Link from CBD to Eastern Suburbs – big plans – but what’s best for PNP?
Please get your comments to Mark: email@example.com by 10 September regarding the staged approach for Miramar Avenue, and by 24 September regarding the two-way cycleway.
We really need to think about this! Segregated cycle lanes are the best for getting 8-80 years olds on a bike, they provide confidence and safety. But how will our bunch rides use the areas? What speed would you travel at within a two-way cycle lane? At what point do you use the road? What message does that send to car drivers?
PNP will again put in a submission, but if you want it to reflect your views, than I need to know what they are. Please email me directly: firstname.lastname@example.org
Details: With work on Cobham Drive about to get under way – it’s time for the wider community to help shape proposals to connect the two-way cycleway with the harbour route to the city, the gateway to Miramar and other parts of the eastern suburbs. Two open days are planned next week so people can look at the work done to date and give their thoughts on the various options for Miramar Avenue, Evans Bay Parade and some 20 other roads linking Kilbirnie and Miramar with Strathmore Park, Seatoun and Newtown.
The open days are at the ASB Sports Centre in Kilbirnie on Wed 6 Sept, 4pm–7pm and Sat 9 Sept 10am–4pm. Information about what’s proposed will be available at: transportprojects.org.nz from Monday 4 September, and at the open days.
Initial feedback is required by 17 September on: a staged approach for Miramar Avenue, including options for the section between Tauhinu Road and Park Road
· options for Evans Bay Parade (Cobham Drive to Carlton Gore Road)
· options for Miramar and Kilbirnie that will provide connections to Seatoun, Strathmore Park and Newtown, involving changes to about 20 streets.
Submissions can also be made before 2 October on a plan to put in a two-way cycleway on the seaward side of Miramar cutting between the intersection of Shelly Bay Road and Tauhinu Road, consistent with the new two-way cycleway going in along Cobham Drive.
