A wide scenic route from Wellington to Hutt would be terrific for recreation and commuting.
It's shameful that tourists coming off the ferry from South Island can't cycle or walk along our magnificent harbour in either direction.
Wellington has a lovely waterfront and Petone's foreshore is attractive but there is an ABYSS between.
Living Streets Aotearoa is the New Zealand organisation for people on foot, promoting walking-friendly communities. We are a nationwide organisation with local branches and affiliates throughout New Zealand.
We want more people walking and enjoying public spaces be they young or old, fast or slow, whether walking, sitting, commuting, shopping, between appointments, or out on the streets for exercise, for leisure or for pleasure.
