What’s proposed?

The Council is seeking community feedback on the Draft Walking and Cycling Strategy and the proposed programme of projects and improvements.

The Draft 2018 Walking and Cycling Strategy is an update to the current Strategy adopted in 2009. It aims to improve walk/cycle networks within and between townships, and also proposes increased funding for annual township footpath extensions throughout the district and for major cycleway projects.

A total of seven major new cycleways, along with other improvements, are proposed over the 10-year period. Other projects are to coordinate with Christchurch Southern Motorway Stage 2 and to provide connections with main cycleway networks.

Major cycleways include:

  • Doyleston to Leeston 2018/19 $895,000

  • Lincoln to Tai Tapu improvements 2019/20 $102,000

  • Rolleston to Templeton 2020/21 $418,000

  • Darfield to Kirwee 2022/23 $1,094,000

  • Jones Rd 2023/24 $840,000

  • Templeton to Prebbleton 2024/25 $588,000

  • West Melton to Rolleston 2026/27 $908,000

  • Springston to Rolleston 2027/28 $622,000

How will this be funded?

The cost of this proposed programme is $5.5 million. The projects will be funded by borrowing with the interest and repayments funded by NZTA subsidy, the General Rate and development contributions. The impact on the rates payable by a $600,000 property is around $4 per year once the work is complete.

Do you support the direction of the draft Walking and Cycling Strategy and the proposed programme?
