CCC Memorial Greers

The corner of Memorial Ave and Greers Road to be made more ‘efficient’. The Orbiter and motorists are inconvenienced by people on bikes and all those kids going to school on foot. The solution? Remove the cycle lane, narrow the footpath. (See Spokes FB page posting for Council diagram and letter in 21.2.19 post) Memorial […]

CCC Old Redcliffs School Park

CCC Old Redcliff’s School            due 17.12.18 https://www.ccc.govt.nz/the-council/consultations-and-submissions/haveyoursay/show/181 What a great park design with sports fields, impressive playground and a new community hall. Just perfect, if this were 1985. Council has made numerous statements in support of cycling. Yet these plans and the Redcliff’s Transport Project fail to provide for, or even mention cycling. Plans show […]

CCC Redcliffs Transport

Redcliffs Transport Project due 17.12.18 https://www.ccc.govt.nz/the-council/consultations-and-submissions/haveyoursay/show/207 Main Road offers cycle lanes and Beachville Road is part of the Coastal Pathway.

CCC Slow Speed Extension

CCC Slow Speed Extension Sub http://cccgovtnz.cwp.govt.nz/the-council/consultations-and-submissions/haveyoursay/show/177 Closes 4 September Spokes Canterbury generally supports lowering speed limits as presented in this proposal. The 10km/h limit is likely to be unrealistic as many people will cycle at a slightly faster rate simply to maintain balance and manoeuvrability. With cycling in the central city primarily on shared streets […]
