The Harbour Bike Lane/walkway Concept Launch

Postby Crashed on Mon 15/Aug/11 6:51pm

Hi guys
Here's something to do after next Sunday afternoon If you are in Auckland. The concept launch of the harbour bridge bike lane/walk way .We were there for the bridge ride in 2009 so lets show our support for all the hard work that Get Across,CAA and others have done in the past two years .They did it for all of us, now we will be able to ride all over Auckland(well in 2013) ,not have to go the long way round or take the ferry to town .Follow the links for more info

Thanks crashed for posting the link. I was hanging on your every word :exclaim:

What you said is right – it saves $ that someone would’ve spent on the ferry (or in a bus or car) so I could cope with it being tolled in the short to medium term.

With tolls other rate payers can't bitch about there cash being spent on the cycling and walking minority.The toll will be less than a return ferry ticket so thats ok by me .Just on a lighter note ,it will be a world first I think, the only tolled walk/cycle way in the world.(I haven't been able to find any on the internet yet but I could be wrong :)
