Have your say on transport

11 March 2005

Have your say on transport

Plans to begin extending a network of walk and cycle ways in Waitakere City are moving ahead.

Work on upgrading the Henderson, Glen Eden, Fruitvale and Sunnyvale rail stations and the project to double track the western line, are providing an opportunity to develop a secure walk and cycle way along the rail line.

To get these projects right, we need to hear what will work best for people living near the rail line, stations and walk and cycle ways.
