Poll: Do you think the controversial Harewood Rd cycleway should go ahead?

Jake Kenny Reporter from Community News

Hi neighbours,

The final design of Christchurch’s most controversial cycleway will not be confirmed until next year as the council makes several changes following unprecedented community feedback.

Christchurch City Council plans to build a $19 million 4.5-kilometre cycleway on Harewood Rd has attracted 1348 submissions – more than any other cycleway in the city so far.

Plans released in January showed the council proposed to reduce Harewood Rd from four lanes to two to make way for cycle lanes, and install eight new traffic lights, including at the Breens/Gardiners intersection and at each end of the Bishopdale roundabout.

Do you think the cycleway should go ahead?

The Team Reporter from The Press

New Zealand is a nation of cat lovers, and increasingly – at least anecdotally – we’re keeping them inside.

What's worse — keeping a cat indoors 24/7, or letting it roam free where it will hunt birds, and possibly be injured?
