The lengthy Wallacevile Estate pedestrian and bike lane which links the entire Estate and The Reserve with upper Upper Hutt including the Wallaceville Railway Station and city CBD is in tatters. There is no lighting whatsoever and the "new" lane is still just a mass of dirt and weeds and puddles in the wet.
The old lane is little better and has also no lighting and is due to be entirely replaced with it being part of the 200 new apartmental houses of the development..
Either lane gets a lot of use from commuters walking to and from the Wallaceville rail station at all hours of the day and night, from school kids, and from people for all sorts of reasons throughout the day and night.
This is a disgrace for a large new expensive housing development still less than half completed after over two years. Council should of course get the developers to do what they are meant to do as a pedestrian lane was always part of the development and its approval.
Currently and for at least a year the inadequacies and danger of the pedestrian and bike lane has been a stark reality.
