Submissions | CAN

By: Cycle Aware Wellington  06-Dec-2011

Submission to GWRC  Social and Cultural Wellbeing Committee 23 November 2011 on behalf of Cycle Aware Wellington Inc, in response to Rimutaka Incline Heritage Trust's application to reinstate a railway line on the Rimutaka Rail Trail.

We conclude that reinstatement of the railway would change the experience of cycling the route completely, and make it impractical for beginners and cycletourists, if not all cyclists.
