Towards a cycle-friendly Wellington
Wellington took a big step forward today to becoming a cycle-friendly city, says James Burgess, Chair of Cycle Aware Wellington.
“I am stoked that our city council unanimously approved the cycling budget of $4.3m,” he says. For context, roading gets $69m.
“This is a win for all of us – whether you ride a bike or not. It means less congestion, less pressure on parking. More fun. More choices. Safer streets. More smiles.”
James says huge thanks are due to everyone who worked over the past decade to get us here.
“Now we are focused on making sure high-quality cycling projects are delivered. We have plenty to do, but I’m sure we’ll get there.”
