Feed­back on cy­cle plans

Central Leader - - SPORT - MARY FITZGER­ALD

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.
