Cycleway parked

Masterton District Council [MDC] will investigate an alternative route for the proposed Eastside link cycleway between Lansdowne and Kuripuni, down Johnstone St, Mākoura Rd, and Kuripuni St. MDC decided at an extraordinary meeting yesterday not to proceed with the proposed route along Colombo Rd and Herbert St. The Transport Choices project will be funded through the Climate Emergency Response Fund administered by Waka Kotahi.
