The Waimakariri District Council is one of the largest employers in the Waimakariri District and has become an employer of choice.
The design phase for the Districts Urban Cycleways Projects can now begin in earnest following the confirmation that funding from the National Land Transport Fund has been approved for both the Rangiora to Kaiapoi and the Rangiora to Woodend Urban Cycleways projects.
This means all funding sources, including the Waimakariri District Council and Urban Cycleway Programme share, are now confirmed.
Roading Manager Ken Stevenson says "We're very pleased to receive the funding confirmation for both of the Waimakariri cycleways. This funding approval means we can continue with our planning and start putting in some firm construction timeframes. We're very excited to be able to deliver this cycling infrastructure to our communities".
Both routes will be off-road and sealed. The Rangiora to Kaiapoi route will begin at the Mafeking Footbridge near Smith Street in Kaiapoi and will follow the Kaiapoi River stop-bank before passing beneath the rail bridge. The path will follow Lineside Road on the western side of the rail bridge. The path will follow Lineside Road on the western side of the railway line and finish by connecting into existing on-road facilities in Southbrook. This route will enable people to ride between the Districts two largest centres.
The Rangiora-Woodend cycleway will follow Rangiora-Woodend Road between Devlin Avenue and Chinnerys Road. It will connect into on-road facilities along Kippenberger Avenue extending to East Belt. At Woodend, the path will connect into on-road facilities extending to School Road.
It is anticipated that riders of all ages and abilities will use the cycleways. Final designs will be completed in early 2017 with construction of both cycleways scheduled to commence in late 2017.
