The Greens’ Caroline Le Couteur is continuing her trend of asking difficult questions. This time asking why London Circuit is being dug up while the “Greater Civic Plan” is due to be endorsed this month.
“The Government is spending $3.8m just on London Circuit, but not taking the opportunity to improve the design.”
“If you are going to shut down London Circuit and rebuild parts of it, this is the time you should add coordinated transport infrastructure, such as separated or on-road bike and bus priority lanes that link up and are safe.”
“London Circuit now has some new, short, on-road bike lanes squeezed in, but they suddenly end in busy traffic. If the Government adds better bike lanes in the future, it will need to demolish its new gutters, making the current work redundant.”
