More bus/bike lanes in Sandringham

MEDIA RELEASE

10 October 2002

More bus/bike lanes in Sandringham

Auckland City is consulting over the possible extension of its successful bus and bike lane programme in Sandringham and New North roads.

If approved, the changes would include extensions to the Sandringham Road bus and bike lanes on both the city bound and outbound sides of the road, and the addition of bus and bike lanes on both sides of New North Road prior to the flyover on-ramp.

Bus/bike lanes are used exclusively by buses, motorcycles and bikes during peak hours from 7am - 9am for city bound traffic and 4pm - 6pm for outbound vehicles. They have been credited with speeding up travel times for bus commuters and reducing congestion by making bus travel more attractive.

Over the past three years, patronage on the Sandringham Road bus services has increased by up to 45 per cent in the peak periods.

Feedback is sought from the public. Information leaflets and feedback forms are being delivered to residents and businesses in the immediate area and additional copies are available by calling Auckland City on 379 2020.

The feedback forms and detailed information are also available online at www.aucklandcity.govt.nz/sandringham. Feedback must be received at Auckland City by 5pm, Friday 8 November.

Far more important than the implications for the Economy Gods ( is the dollar up or down? ) last night’s outcome will also mean many, many vulnerable New Zealanders will have a better life over the next three years at least.

Yet the desire for change was in the majority, across the country..>>>More
