Big win for cycling in Auckland!

It’s like all my dreams have come true, well almost.

Over the next three years the Government and Auckland Council have committed to spending $90m on cycling infrastructure. The inner-city is a big winner. There are some notable projects that include the Grey Lynn Greenway, K’Rd, Victoria Park and Hobson Bay.

One project missing from the list which needs to be addressed is the Parnell Rail Trail. This is our once in a lifetime chance to open up the former rail tunnel, former home to the glow worms, before the land is developed and the opportunity lost forever.

Auckland Transport have a major challenge ahead of them with their current project management capacity to deliver all projects in three years. Time will tell but the direction looks good.
