I agree - the nw cycleway is fine until you come to the steep climb up to Newton Rd then K Rd then drop back down to Canada St. I understand a solution is being planned. It looks like a new detour off to Upper Queen St from which to loop back to Canada St.
I love the freedom and health benefits of getting around by bike but agree with others on some problem areas -
1. The steep hike up Newton Rd from the nw cycle path only to drop back to access the pink path. Good to see that will be addressed.
2. Traffic terrors from Kelston along Gt Nth Rd/ Ash St/Rata St/ Waterview. Passes several significant schools so some safety improvements would be welcome.
3. Hillsborough to Onehunga - I tackled Hendry Rd on Sunday then returned via Onehunga and Herd Rd. Both were very fitness-inducing if not repeat the feat-inducing.
