From cycle action Waiheke organiser - Tanya Batt:
"You may have read about our 'Cycle Path Action' Day, set for tomorrow, Sat 21st at 10am. Well, we've had a wee 'spanner in the bike wheel'. It appears the concerned citizens cannot simply go and clean public infrastructure - according to AT. "Volunteers are prohibited from working on the roadside corridor" and neither are non council businesses such as the generous Gonsalo Garcia -Waiheke Landscaping and Lawn Care who had offered his services free of charge for community benefit. We discovered all of this upon trying to borrow high vis vests, cones and signage to keep ourselves and others safe while undertaking our cycle path tidy up. The upshot being - we are not having a 'Cycle Path Maintenance Action Day' tomorrow. We will however be meeting to document the state of our cycle paths at 10am tomorrow at the intersection of O'Brien and the main road if you'd like to join us. Or maybe you could help us out by ringing and emailing Auckland Transport and asking them to come and clean our cycle paths so we are able to use them safely. at.govt.nz/about-us/contact-us/report-a-problem/ Phone 09 355 3553."
