Interestingly K Road doesn't seem to be attractive to corporates, they like to be in near Waterfront where everyone else is. They few left at the western end have all moved/moving out and apartments coming in their place. These natural dynamics will help K Road stay as place for creative people.
I don't share the same thoguhts about more apartments, or better transport links (such as CRL and cycleway). High housing prices have already pushed some of the community away, if people can easily make it to K Rd from areas with lower housing prices this will help keep K Road as a place for this community to congregate.
This excellent release about the health benefits of cycling has just come out this morning from Auckland University too.
Great to see it joining the chorus of people calling for separated cycleways.
Ciclovia is a very exciting event, and hate to be a downer, but not good timing.
This is a rail network closure weekend, so no trains on Western, Eastern or between Newmarket and Britomart. This has been long planned, so organisers should have looked this up. and also can't be next weekend because of NRL nines, Lantern festival which means definitely need trains that weekend.
Irony will now be most people driving into the city to enjoy a car free bike ride.
Also pity the people that will turn up expecting to be able to take bikes on trains, and being told they can't, or get dumped at Newmarket and have to cycle along busy roads to Quay St.
Should be seeing the end of these closures soon, inevitable but events need to be planned around them!
