Great Harbour Way Trustee and former Mayor Celia Wade-Brown is delighted the Government will be advancing the missing link in the Great Harbour Way.
“The Great Harbour Way, Te Aranui o Pōneke, is an amazing scenic opportunity for locals and tourists alike, for both recreation and commuting.” says Ms Celia Wade-Brown.
“Fixing the gap between Ngauranga and Petone will also seamlessly connect the capital to the Remutaka Trail. Both Hutt and Wellington City Councils are working on their parts, New Zealand Transport Agency must do their section.”
Victoria Walks has released the Footpath Cycling Discussion Paper
Victoria Walks, Council On The Ageing, Vision Australia and others strongly oppose any change to allow footpath cycling.

Talking, walking, seeing fall colours and catching up with friends and family - what's not to like about a visit to North America in September?
We started with the grand official opening of the Banff Commonwealth Walkway. It physically links several paths around this Rocky Mountain City. Virtually there is a link to other Commonwealth countries including our own capital where the markers were finished last year. I was moved by the indigenous welcome from Siksika Nation elder Tom Crane Bear.
New Zealand’s road toll is too high. On a per capita basis it is double that of the UK, and among the highest in the world - alongside Cambodia, Malaysia, Lithuania and Slovenia.
Download this report from Victoria Walks (Australia) on how we can improve roads to make pedestrians safer.
See section 4 for the list of solutions. These will help all road users.
We have recently released the report Benchmarking Cycling and Walking in Six New Zealand Cities. This report compares Auckland, Tauranga, Hamilton, Wellington, Christchurch and Dunedin for important inputs (e.g. funding, policies, infrastructure) and outputs (e.g. extent of walking and cycling, population health and safety) with regards to active transport. The report and supplementary material are available here: http://sustainablecities.org.nz/resilient-urban-futures/benchmarking/
