The city council recently let an $86,000 tender for the preparation of a strategy covering a time aligned with regional walking and cycling plans and Upper Hutt s Urban Growth Strategy . The tender, budgeted in the council s 2010-11 annual plan, was won by Viastrada, a Christ- church traffic engineering and planning consul- tancy. The work will identify current and future pedestrian and cycling needs and the existing deficiencies. The consultants will identify the demand and expectations of user groups (commuters, rec- reational, children and the elderly) and draw up, cost and prioritise a package of projects to meet their agreed transport needs. Viastrada is currently preparing surveys for collection of data, city infrastructure director Lachlan Wallach says. When that is ready the draft strategy will be released for public consultation. The consultants will recommend the order for the projects they recommend but there will be no timetable on the work. We have deliberately not asked for the consult- ant to work up a timetable on the work they see as necessary. That will be done through the council s long- term community planning, Mr Wallach says. The council s existing long term plan has a clear objective to enhancing cycling facilities. Changes would provide significant benefits to the city, including more visitors coming to enjoy its natural beauty and providing cyclists with safe riding routes, he says. A $640,000 sealed surface along the stopbank east of Moonshine Bridge to Poplar Gr is included in the council s draft annual plan for 2011-12. Other improvements, in the city s long-term community plan, include a bike trail from Silver- stream to Upper Hutt, running within the rail corridor and off-road access along Fergusson Dr (between St Patrick s College and the Hutt River), and a subway under State Highway 2 at the Totara Park Bridge. All these projects would require shared funding between the council and the NZ Transport Agency. Showing his skills: Judah Plester, 12, of Upper Hutt jumps his bike off one of the ramps in the skills area at the start of the Wellington leg of the Meridian Kids Bike Jam series at Wainuiomata Mountain Bike Park on Sunday. It is the fourth time Judah has competed in the Bike Jam, in the past held at Trentham Memorial Park and Mt Victoria. The Fergusson Intermediate student bikes to school from his Pinehaven home in all weathers. All Bike Jam participants were rewarded with medals on Sunday.

After featuring in a letter to the editor, the cat, which had disap- peared from Clouston Park, was found in Kingsley Heights where she had walked into a house and made herself at home. She was not wearing her collar when found. The tabby with white feet and bib and aged seven months disap- peared again on Thursday, April 28, and was wearing a yellow col- lar with her owner s phone num- ber 977 9126 on it.
