Bor­ing name

Kapi-Mana News - - OPINION - KATHY PEERS, Tawa (Abridged)


Re­gard­ing the new name be­ing sought for the Tawa shared path­way. Why has it been made so bor­ing?

I would have thought it was to get peo­ple away from roads, es­pe­cially Dun­can St where col­lege kids race their cars.

They had all the trees al­ready there to me­an­der a track through. Why didn’t they? They have just ex­tended the foot­paths at a large cost.

Take a look at Pau­ata­hanui; no con­crete paths, all for­est floors to bird watch. It’s low cost, all nat­u­ral along the stream, as in Otai­hanga. We could have had this – why not?

I have walked and cy­cled ev­ery path in New Zealand. I can hon­estly say this is the most bor­ing. I take it the peo­ple who made it do not walk any­where.
