Hutt City want feedback on the proposed beltway cycleway which will run from Seaview to Taita in Lower Hutt. The Beltway Cycleway will use spare space on railway land, and super-wide roads around Lower Hutt to start the project, and will eventually become a network of cycleways that are planned around the city.
There is an open day this weekend:
When: 11am-3pm, Saturday 1 December
Where: Walter Nash Centre, 20-22 Taine Street, Taita
The Hutt City webpage has more information about the proposal, including concept drawings, and how you can get involved.

Awesome to see work beginning on one of the worst sections to the daily cycle commute into Wellington, from Ngauranga. Getting rid of the poles is a fantastic start, and it’ll be great to see the project link up with the Thorndon Quay and Ngauranga sections of the cycleway.
