Frockers – Wellington cyclists need you!
The WCC has proposed increasing the cycling budget to $4.3 million to spend on new cycle infrastructure… whoop!!!!
BUT… the Council also needs to fund libraries and pools and earthquake strengthening and events and, well, the list goes on. The cycling budget would only be a fraction of this total, but so so very significant for Wellington cyclists and long overdue.
Here’s where you come in:
We need you to make a submission supporting the cycling budget increase. It’ll only take a couple of minutes.
Click on this link: Draft Annual Plan 2014/15 and fill in the online submission form.
Tell them why better safer roads are important to you. Tell them why you love riding your bike. Tell them you want to do it more often. And you want your friends to join you!
Here’s some more ideas from Cycle Aware Wellington: http://can.org.nz/caw-2014/have-your-say
