SkyPath – Act Now – You can make it happen!

January 19, 2015
You know you want it!

You know you want it!

I’ve just returned to civilization after weeks under canvas and realized the most important thing in Auckland’s cycling future is chest-deep in red-tape and needs our support.

After a decade of massive work by the SkyPath team, they’re at the stage where our input really counts!

The resource consent for SkyPath (cycle and walkway over Auckland’s harbour bridge) is in, and public submissions are open until Friday 23rd of January.

Generation Zero have made the submission process incredibly quick and simple, here’s the link.

I just completed it – took less than a minute. Fill out the form and play your part in Auckland’s cycling future. It’s not very often plebs like you and I can really make a difference. There’s 6000 submissions so far, let’s make it 10,000 and show the powers-that-be how much we want this!

More info over at Cycle Action Auckland, Generation Zero and the SkyPath team themselves.

    Having grown up on the Shore, its a pretty ambitious but worthy project in my opinion. Really glad that I discovered this and your blog before we head over from the UK in Feb. Look forward with interest to hearing progress…

    I so hope this goes through. Will save me a packet in ferry fares and will be a ridiculous amount of fun too. Ambitious yes, but we definitely need more infrastructure to make cycling and walking easier.

      There will be a toll for SkyPath. They propose between $2 and $4 each way depending on how you pay – Hop card etc.
