Feedback on cycle plans
A proposed cycleway link will cut travel time for commuters cycling into the city centre from West Auckland.
Auckland Transport (AT) is seeking public feedback on plans revealed on August 1 for the Ian McKinnon Drive Cycleway which is a two-way, on-road cycleway with shared pathway access through Suffolk Reserve in Eden Terrace.
The proposed cycleway will improve the connection for people cycling into the city from the Northwestern Cycleway and Dominion Rd, AT cycling and walking manager Kathryn King says.
‘‘This...will extend the Northwestern Cycleway through Suffolk Reserve and will continue as a two-way cycleway on the city-side of Ian McKinnon Dr.
‘‘It will also be great for people cycling from Dominion Rd who will be able to continue on Ian McKinnon Dr and then into the city via Lightpath, Grafton Gully or Queen St,’’ King says.
‘‘Currently people cycling from the Northwestern Cycleway have to go up to Newton Rd and either cross the road at the lights or do a loop around Piwakawaka St. They end up on the south side of Ian McKinnon Dr so have to cross the road again if they are going to the city.’’
Public feedback for Ian McKinnon Dr Cycleway is open until and including August 29.
