Map your day out

Central Leader - - NEWS -

Get­ting around on foot or by bike in the Al­bertE­den Lo­cal Board area just got eas­ier.

A new map show­ing all known walk­ing and cycling routes in the area has been launched by the board to en­cour­age res­i­dents to use more sus­tain­able trans­port op­tions.

Fea­tures like pedes­trian cross­ings, un­der­passes, bus stops, and even sets of shops and pub­lic build­ings are high­lighted.

‘‘Un­like most maps that might show you the his­toric walk around Mt Eden, or even the tracks on Mt Eden, this shows ev­ery­thing,’’ lo­cal board mem­ber Graeme Easte says.

‘‘It al­lows you to make your own itin­er­ary whether you want a 15 minute walk to clear your head, to plan a safe route for the kids to walk to school, or you want a whole day out.’’

The western and eastern parts of the board area are shown on two sep­a­rate maps.
