Rutene Road cycleway - the new Rutene Road cycleway as currently proposed will be a 2-way (bi-directional) separated, on-road cycleway, running from Wainui Road along Rutene and Ormond roads to the Ormond/Fitzherbert roundabout.
The approx $2.5m funding for this project comes from the Urban Cycleways Fund ($400k), National Land Transport Fund ($1.3M) and Council ($777k) and includes changes to the William Pettie Bridge.
Council has requested a full programme of community engagement for this project. It's intended that consultation will begin June 2018. The concept as currently proposed involves removal of street parking and side road closures at Hinaki, Wildish streets and Craig Road intersections with Rutene Road. The community consultation process for this project is being re-scoped to allow more effective early input from stakeholders, including affected residents.
