Let’s Get Welly Moving (LGWM) still wants to build a motorway flyover (which they call a bridge) at the Basin Reserve!
LGWM has released four scenarios. These scenarios are very vague, but three of the four leave open the possibility of a Basin Reserve flyover:
- Scenario A, if adopted, would not involve a flyover at the Basin.
- Scenarios B, C or D could see a Basin flyover being built.
Here are alternative proposals and submission guides from other transport groups:
- FIT Wellington: Scenario A+ (Scenario A + light rail)
- Living Streets Aotearoa: http://www.livingstreets.org.nz/node/4993
- Cycle Aware Wellington: https://cycwell.wordpress.com/2017/12/08/lets-get-wellington-biking/
Submit before 15 December. You don’t have to go through the whole LGWM form. You can just comment on Scenario A (Step 1, near the bottom of that page), then skip to Step 6 to fill in your details and submit the form.
Tell LGWM something like:
Scenario A may be acceptable. However, I need more detail of what Scenario A involves before I can be sure. I reject Scenarios B, C and D.
Scenario A+ from FIT Wellington looks very promising and improves on Scenario A. I want to see Scenario A+ developed further. I reject Scenarios B, C and D.
and then add your other comments.
