A Dunedin cycle lobby group says a New Zealand Transport
Agency proposal for a central city intersection where a
cyclist was killed will do little, if anything, to actually
improve safety, despite that being the objective.
The New Zealand Transport Agency's (NZTA) application to
change the designation for a new $20 million two-lane bridge
on State Highway 6, between Kelvin Heights and Frankton, will
be heard over three days next month.
All tender processes run by the Otago Regional Council for
public bus services will be audited by the New Zealand
Transport Agency, which is concerned about the council's
maximum bus age and emission standards.
Dunedin City Council chief executive Paul Orders is writing
to the New Zealand Transport Agency (NZTA) asking it to
urgently address the issue of safety for cyclists on
Dunedin's one-way state highway system.
