UHL51364 Mayors voice their fears over risky cycle route Closing the gaps: Wellington mayor Celia Wade-Brown and Lower Hutt mayor Ray Wallace are both keen to see the one-way, part cycleway between Petone and Ngauranga completed. Photo: JIM CHIPP You would have to have nerves of steel to ride this road, Lower Hutt Mayor Ray Wallace said last week. He was speaking as he ner- vously cycled from Petone along State Highway 2 to Horokiwi, where the Petone-Ngauranga cycleway-footpath ends, about a kilometre from Petone. The track was complete until the 1970s, when its north end was sacrificed to make way for a merging lane for southbound Esplanade and Hutt Rd vehicles joining State Highway 2. Since then, southbound cyclists, runners and walkers have been forced to use the high- way shoulder for part of their journey to Ngauranga. Mr Wallace described the experience as horrific . It felt like a near-death experience. Will I be racing to do it again tomorrow? Absolutely no way, he said. This is the only direct road from the Hutt [to Wellington] so it should be for cars, cyclists and walkers. Wellington Mayor Celia Wade-Brown also checked out the incomplete cycleway- footpath. People [cyclists] are taking their lives in their own hands, she said. The only alternative route for walkers is via Porirua, Paua- tahanui and Haywards, she said. The New Zealand Transport Agency should be bringing it for- ward as soon as possible and I hope we get support from the regional transport committee, she said. Restoring the broken path is one of the measures proposed for the next 10 years in the draft Hutt Corridor Plan, currently open for public submissions. An option under investigation includes improving the existing off-road cycleway, a connection across the railway and a new off- road facility on the seaward side to Petone, at a projected cost of $14 million. Other measures of interest to cyclists and walkers in the 10-year plan are an upgrade to the Hutt River trail between Petone and Upper Hutt, a new cycle and walkway between the Upper Hutt business area and schools, and a beach-to-bush walk and cycleway in Petone. Among the proposed public transport expenditure items are improved train stations, more park-and-ride spaces, refur- bished or replaced Ganz Mavag trains and a review of Hutt Val- ley bus, train and harbour ferry services. Road works include a $40m interchange at the Haywards- State Highway 2 intersection, a new Petone-to-Grenada high- way, and traffic flow improve- ments to Petone Esplanade, the Western Hutt Rd, State High- way 58 and Grays Rd. Work planned more than 10 years ahead includes more rail- way improvements, more safety upgrades on State Highway 58, interchanges at Melling and Kennedy-Good bridges, and four-laning Upper Hutt s River Rd between Silverstream and Moonshine Bridge. Submissions on the draft Hutt Corridor Plan close at 4pm on Wednesday, June 15.

A WORD OF ADVICE Law provides safeguards when service providers come up short When a service you have paid for goes wrong, it sometimes feels like your fault for listening to the recommendation of your friend's aunt's neighbour's cousin. But under the Consumer Guarantees Act there are guarantees all services must meet when they are bought for personal or domestic use, the Ministry of Consumer Affairs says. Services must be provided with reasonable care and skill. This means that the service must be at least as good as what a competent person with average skills and experi- ence would provide. Services must be fit for a par- ticular purpose. This means that the service must be reasonably fit for any particular purpose, or reasonably achieve any particu- lar result that you asked for. After you have told the service provider what service you want from them, and they accept the job, they must make sure they comply with this so you get what you want. However, you cannot rely on this guarantee if you insist on a service the provider says will not produce the result sought. For example, if you insist on a hair colour your hairdresser says will not work on your hair, you cannot complain if the shade is not right. Services must be provided within a reasonable time if you have not agreed on a time when the job must be finished. Reasonable time will be judged on the time it takes a competent person who works in that type of job to complete the task. Services must also be provided at a reasonable price if you have not agreed on an amount. If the problem is minor you can ask the service provider to fix it at no cost to you. If they refuse or fail to do so, or take more than a reasonable time to fix it, you can get some- one else to fix it and claim the cost from the supplier or cancel the contract for service and ref- use to pay for all or some of the work done. If the problem is major you can cancel the contract for the service and refuse to pay for the work done or pay less than the agreed price. If you have already paid you may be able to get some or all of your money back. If the work has caused dam- age to other property, you can claim compensation for that damage. This is called conse- quential loss. Find out more about your rights and what to do if something goes wrong at consumeraffairs.govt.nz, or by visiting your local Citizens Advice Bureau.
