Shared cycle track opens
There were shrieks of delight from Tawhero and St Marcellin school students as a shared cycle track linking the two schools was officially opened on Monday, 5 November.
Funding for the track was courtesy of Bike On New Zealand Charitable Trust and benefactors Dora and Bruce Gollan. The Council's Active Transport Facilitator, Norman Gruebsch, says its purpose is to increase the cycling abilities and confidence of younger riders, providing them with a safe and accessible place to hone their cycling skills. It will also be available to the wider community as a walking track.
