    There is a lot to like in the cycling sections of this Annual Plan. One can always quibble, ask for more, but we are fortunate to have an occasion to be thankful. CCC is going to need a great deal of support and frankly, pressure, to be able to follow through on the proposed level

    This project was already consulted on in late 2016. While a real improvement, it fell short of CCC’s own Cycle Design Guidelines for a Major Cycle Route. Submissions received provided strong support along with requests to improve what was on offer. Business owners on the Ferry Road section complained that they would lose much needed

    OK, a bit harsh but, please read on. CCC continues to roll out the Major Cycle Routes, MCR’s, for consultation. The most recent is the Nor’West Arc which goes from the University down to Cashmere Road near Princess Margaret Hospital. This link will take you to CCC’s Have Your Say and the details. The issues

    Guest blogger Robert has been checking out the latest action in his neighbourhood: Well, the summer may not have been so great and already the morning temperatures are a bit autumnal but, since the New Year began, cycleway construction in Christchurch has ramped up with quite some intensity.

It evolved into a four-hour masterclass
