Wellington St!

Wellington Street Copenhagen bicycle lanes were debated at council last 
night with a report presented "/That a further report on this matter be 
brought back to the 17 December Council meeting outlining the 
consequences for the Bicycle Strategy of not proceeding with the 
Wellington Street Copenhagen lanes at this time."/

There was a good debate amongst the councillors with 5 members of the 
public speaking on each side of the topic.  After 2.5hrs of debate a 
motion was passed that effectively said that council officers will 
finalise a permanent Copenhagen bicycle lane between Victoria and 
Johnston Street.  Council officers will tender for the work and then 
seek permission from council to construct the works based on the 
tendered costs. It is likely that this will occur around July.


Also, we are currently looking at upgrading the Rathdowne Street 
buffered bicycle lane to include green paint at some intersection and 
the inclusion of a 'dooring' buffer by reducing the width of the traffic 

Hoping to catch up with some of you tonight at the Napier Hotel from 6:30pm.
