Cycleway plan on track


Christchur­ch: Plans for a controvers­ial, costly Christchur­ch cycleway will continue — despite an attempt to halt the process yesterday.

Hundreds of residents and several business owners are frustrated and upset they were not involved before design work was done for the

$19 million project.

The Christchur­ch City Council has now promised to involve the community as it tries to improve the heavily criticised plans.

Dubbed ‘‘Wheels to Wings’’, the cycleway is planned for the main thoroughfa­re of Harewood Rd — linking Christchur­ch city to the airport and surroundin­g areas. It would cut two traffic lanes and reduce parking, upsetting residents and businesses in Bishopdale and Papanui. — RNZ
