Safer eastern suburbs cycle connections – sessions this week for the public and Kilbirnie businesses

2 May 2016

Wellington City Council will be holding two public drop-in sessions this week at ASB Sports Centre in Kilbirnie as part of the consultation now on for potential cycling corridors and routes in the eastern suburbs.

People can come along any time if they want to find out more and talk to Council staff about the options now being put forward for the public to have their say. The sessions are on at the ASB Sports Centre in Kemp Street:

  • 4.30pm-7.30pm, Wednesday 4 May
  • 9am-3pm, Saturday 7 May.

Business owners in Kilbirnie are also encouraged to attend a meeting this week, hosted by the Kilbirnie Business Network.

The Business Network has invited the City Council to talk to its members about the suggested cycle routes and to seek input from the local business community. Business people in Kilbirnie who are not part of the Business Network group are also welcome to attend.

The meeting will be held at 5.45pm, Thursday 5 May, Brentwood Hotel, Kemp Street, Kilbirnie.

The equivalent business group in Miramar, Enterprise Miramar Peninsula, will also host the Council at one of its regular meetings on Tuesday 10 May at the Oriental-Rongotai Rugby Club (details to be confirmed).

Public consultation on cycling in the eastern suburbs runs until 5pm, Monday 23 May.
