Four times now 80% of submitters have told Wellington City Council the solution they want is what has become known as option E. Four times they have been ignored.

Reseal the parade approx. cost $280,000.00 based on Council figures for 2016 where they spent $9.5million resealing 68km of road.

2. Move the bus stops back to where they were, this involve breaking up the kerb extensions the Council put on and re kerbing approx. half a km of the parade.

3. Put unmarked car parking back against the kerb, no markings equate to more carparks.

4. Clearly paint using green or another colour a cycleway on the roadside of parked cars, increasing the width by .5 of a metre from the original cycleway design.

5. In the shopping centre retain the current shared space and carparks.

6. Look at reducing the speed limit along the parade.

7. Remove the speed humps around the shopping centre and lower the height of the pedestrian crossings.

8. Retain pedestrian crossings on the parade.

9. To be confirmed but and indicative costing would be no more than $750, 000.00 thousand.

Enough is enough its time for Action we are taking the Council to court, help us in our fight for Democracy. If every person who is not happy with current cycleway designs donates $1 we will achieve our funding goal in no time.

“Keep it up! that cycle way is ridiculous, I never see anymore that one person on it. If I lived on the parade I would be livered.”
“Well Done and good luck.”
“All the best with this fight - I hope we have a positive outcome to change this ridiculous design of our beautiful Parade.”
“Lester needs to sort this out, he’s turning into another ‘no action’ Celia !”
“Go hard! ...and thanks!”
“ALL THE BEST!”
“Thank you to the IBRA who have been relentless in their pursuit to make The Parade safe again for the majority of users.”
“It makes me sad every day that the overwhelming views of the people of island bay were ignored. This is not nimbyism because nobody would travel any distance just to go up and down the island bay cycle way. It was intended for the use of island bay residents and we didn’t want it. It makes you feel powerless in front of the faceless bureaucracy. Good luck.”
“Good on you IBRA”
“Good luck”
