Cycleway programme accelerated as mayor accused of trying to stymie debate

Nicole Mathewson Reporter from The Press

A last-ditch attempt to delay the completion of Christchurch’s $300 million cycleway programme has failed, with the city council deciding to accelerate it instead.

The council decided on Monday to complete its 101-kilometre network of cycleways by 2028 – one year earlier than proposed in the draft LTP, but still 11 years later than expected when the network was first proposed in 2013.

It also decided to bring forward a cycleway connection from Westmorland to the Nor’West Arc cycleway from 2031 to 2025.

The council also decided to spend $931m over 10 years on roads and footpaths and $96.7m on public transport infrastructure, including bus stops and shelters.

Red zone.

Maureen from Woolston

Very nice to see new footpaths and gutters being done in the red zone. I don’t understand as there isn’t any houses there. Well done CCC. Our money you are wasting. I’m over this council.
