Transport group linking projects

The Otago Regional Council is continuing to take part in a "Connecting Dunedin" group that promotes an "integrated approach" to Dunedin city transport-related projects.

ORC chief executive Peter Bodeker told an ORC meeting yesterday  he was involved in the group, headed by Dunedin City Council chief executive officer Sue Bidrose, and including NZ Transport Agency Jim Harland, which aimed to show how "transport-related projects" fitted together in a "consolidated picture".

The projects included cycleways, the one-way system revamp, parking charges, the bus hub and public transport network changes.

The group aimed to ensure  the public could see how many activities, such as roadways, public transport, cycling and pedestrian access, were "all integrated", Mr Bodeker said.


Integrated? How about ORC provide a service first. they have taken away the bus service to one of the most high density areas of City Rise. This is where students, pensioners, families live and they now have no bus. Canongate, Russell St, & Arthur South. They've got new bus shelters but no bus!
