Poll: Are you in favour of the new cycleway being trialled in Auckland's CBD?

Caryn Wilkinson Reporter from Community News

Cyclists will have additional spots to lock up their bikes with new facilities installed as part of a cycleway trial.

Project WAVE is a $1 million cycleway trial in the Viaduct Harbour to connect the Quay and Nelson Street cycleways that could have over a thousand daily users.

Auckland Transport (AT) confirmed two new bike parking facilities able to accommodate 16 bikes have been installed as part of the trial, taking the total number of bike parks along the cycleway to 56.

The project is opposed by a group of residents and business owners.

The two new bike parking facilities are located on Customs Street West between Market Place and Lower Hobson Street. One is located near the Tepid Baths, and one is near O’Hagan’s bar.

The area now has enough space for around 56 bikes, as there were already existing facilities to accommodate 40 bikes before Project WAVE was implemented.

AT spokeswoman Natalie Polley said there are also numerous new bike parking facilities on Quay Street and in the new square as part of the Downtown project.

"That doesn’t even take into account bike parking at the ferry terminal, the AT Downtown Carpark and at many other locations on the Viaduct,” she said.

Join us for an evening to celebrate YOU!

The Team from Pest Free Kaipātiki Restoration Society (Inc.)

In preparation for upcoming National Volunteer Week (June 20th to June 26th), we want to celebrate the hours volunteers have put into protecting and enhancing Kaipātiki’s natural spaces and supporting Pest Free Kaipātiki in our goal for a healthy and flourishing flora and fauna in the region.

We also like to take this opportunity to thank those who have volunteered with PFK in the past, and those who have expressed an interest in volunteering in the future.

During the event, we also want to ensure that all our volunteers, new and old, feel confident volunteering, whether that be at community events, as street champions, working in hit squads, or helping out at planting days. To this end, we have some skill-building activities planned to help us get to know each other, and PFK, better.

We would love for you to join us for an evening of community building and celebration. Get in touch if you are interested enquiries@pestfreekaipatiki.org.nz
