Is it worth putting a cycleway on the Harbour Bridge?


Walking and cycling campaigners are proposing a novel user-pays tolling scheme to blaze a pathway across Auckland Harbour Bridge in time for the 2011 Rugby World Cup.

The Getacross Campaign, supported by the Holmes Consulting Group of engineers, is today unveiling a proposal for a $12 million shared walking and cycleway it believes could be tucked under the outside cantilevered edge of the bridge's southbound clip-on.

That differs from an early proposal to widen the bridge's two clip-ons for a cycleway on one side and a walking path on the other, for what the Transport Agency said would be a prohibitive $43 million.
