Yesterday afternoon Associate Transport Minister Julie Anne Genter advised:
“A shared walking and cycling path across Auckland Harbour Bridge is a very important project for Auckland, it’s a priority for this Government and we are committed to delivering it. I urge both parties to get back round the table to work out a mutually beneficial solution.”
We welcome the opportunity to find that “mutually beneficial solution” so that Aucklanders can be walking and cycling across their Harbour Bridge in 2021.
We’ve asked NZTA whether they are willing to meet and invited Auckland Council (as owners of SkyPath’s resource consent) to also attend. More details available in this Radio NZ story.
