Head in sand

Central Leader - - Letters -

The neg­a­tive at­ti­tude of the Auck­land City Coun­cil to­wards the pro­posal to con­struct a walk­way and cy­cle­way on the Auck­land Har­bour Bridge is very dis­ap­point­ing and is a real let-down to the peo­ple of Auck­land.

In the face of soar­ing fuel prices and ever-wors­en­ing traf­fic con­ges­tion, one would think such a pro­posal for one of New Zealand’s icons would have the full sup­port of the coun­cil.

The coun­cil needs to get its head out of the sand and start putting in place al­ter­na­tive non­car and oil-re­liant trans­port in­fra­struc­ture.

And peo­ple will use it – just look at the num­ber of peo­ple who walk and cy­cle along Ta­maki Drive ev­ery day. ISAAC BROOME
