Join The Streets For People Project - Richmond


Additional community minded people needed by TDC for further ideas on Streets For People Project or to join their team

With the first co-designed trial separated cycle lanes about to go down on Salisbury Road, we’re now setting our sights on other neighbourhoods. To do this, we’re looking for new people from the Richmond community to join our existing working group to guide our Streets for People programme.

Last year we were granted $2.4 million from Waka Kotahi to improve spaces for safer cycling on Salisbury Road, Wensley Road, Queen Street, Hill Street and Champion Road. We plan to link places where people live with schools, commercial centres, and the wider existing network of cycle trails.

Our current working group has partnered with our traffic engineers and transport team to come up with preferred layouts on Salisbury Road, but as our focus extends to other neighbourhoods we’re looking for input from more people interested in joining the steering group.

The next phases of the Richmond Streets for People programme will include Wensley Road, then Champion Road, followed by Hill and Queen Streets.

We need a few more people to join our small, dedicated community steering group to work with our project team and come up with ideas and concepts, before we put more test layouts on the ground.
