Spring Clean the Steps

Join us for a Sunday afternoon spring cleaning the Grafton Road to Maida Vale Road steps, Roseneath - the longest stretch of steps in Wellington. These fabulous steps have become overgrown over winter and need a brush up to be ready for the spring and summer foot traffic down to the Balaena Bay beach. Bring your broom or weeder along and lend a hand with your neighbours - or just come along for a chat.

 

Step out for a social Sunday work out on the longest steps in Wellington

Road stopping - a Wellington submission example and Environment Court decision

We have become concerned at the number of legal but unformed roads that have been stopped and sold. This limits the future choices and potential uses for the land. Unformed legal road is often used by pedestrians for accessways or potentially could be used as such.

Study on a sample of Wellington walkways as published in the NZ Medical Journal.

The attached study on a sample of Wellington walkways was published today in the NZ Medical Journal. It shows that while lighting of street-connecting walkways at night is generally good – there was a quarter of walkways where it was inadequate (ie, it was too dark to see your feet or to see the steps).

In the “Discussion” section of the attached – various options for improving things are outlined, in case the Council wishes to consider these.

Hope this is of interest.
