Greenway project waits for the green light

16:00, Feb 14 2013

The Waitemata Local Board is hoping to get the green light to move forward with its project to create more cycling and walking connections in the city.

Board members will seek public feedback on the proposed greenways plan at an event on February 20.

The family friendly event will give people the chance to have their say while learning more about how the greenways would look and work.

Connections proposed for development in the first phase of the project include connecting Ponsonby with Victoria Park and Cox's Bay Reserve, Meola Reef to Victoria Park with a coastal greenway and a connection to Newmarket through the old Parnell rail tunnel.

Waitemata Local Board deputy chairwoman Pippa Coom says public feedback is critical to getting the network right.

Guided cycle tours, a scooter skills course, MGP Pro Scooter team display and treasure hunt also feature in the evening's lineup.

The event will be held at the Richmond Rovers Rugby League Club, 55-61 Elgin St, Grey Lynn from 4pm till 7pm.
