Hauraki Rail Trail progress

15 05 2011

On Auckland Trains is a post with great news about the Hauraki Rail Trail. It looks like it is going to get built.

I think from the map it means there will be safe riding between Kaiaua and Miranda, around the Firth of Thames, to Thames and then through to Waihi or Te Aroha.

There mightn’t be any funding for urban cycle infrastructure, and they may leave us with a multi-gazillion dollar debt, but John Key’s National government at least is helping with progressing rural cycle infrastructure. Maybe not in completely meaningful ways (for instance I have found that the SH1 bridge over the Manawatu River is very, very scary to ride) but it’s a start.
