We Say/You Say: How can Wellington's bike routes be improved?

Reporter Upper Hutt Leader

Kia ora neighbours,

Wellington City Council is seeking feedback until December 14 on its bike network plan.

The plan includes finishing Tahitai, the route around Evans Bay, and The Parade upgrade in Island Bay.

They are particularly looking for opinions of young Wellingtonians to be shared in the Tamariki Zone - the Council's online space for kids under 14 to have their say on developing safe and connected biking and scooting routes around the city.

Do you or your kids love biking and know how Wellington can be improved? Share your thoughts below and don't forget to type NFP if you don't want your comment featured in the conversations section of the Upper Hutt Leader.
