About Connecting Carterton – Schools Link

Carterton District Council is welcoming feedback on a proposed new cycleway through the heart of our town.

Waka Kotahi’s Transport Choices programme is supporting Connecting Carterton – Schools Link through provisional funding of cycleways connecting our schools, providing safe, clean transport options for our young people and healthy connections for our community.

The cycleways will connect four of our town centre schools with our green spaces.

Starting at South End Park on Brooklyn Road, the cycleway connects the park’s BMX track with South End School, moving north along State Highway 2 to St Mary’s School and Ponatahi Christian School, before connecting with Carrington Park and Carterton School.

Council has secured provisional funding of $918,720 from Waka Kotahi to fund projects that create greater transport choices to ensure people can access all their needs, while creating safer and healthier environments. The provisional funding is subject to a series of checks, the last of which includes approval of detailed design, due at the end of September. The Council also received an additional $180,000 to provide undercover bike sheds and racks to the schools.

The design incorporates safety features to ensure separation from highway traffic and to boldly show where cyclists can use the tracks, allowing for plenty of pedestrian access through High Street South and adjoining roads.

Council is seeking community feedback on the Project from Monday 14 August. We will close feedback on Sunday 27 August for inclusion in the detailed design, so get in quick!
