That the Waitematā Local Board:

c)          support the inclusion of 

i)           a protected bi-directional cycleway on the eastern side of Symonds Street

ii)         ensuring connectivity northwards along Symonds Street

iii)        providing bus lanes throughout those parts of Symonds Street and New North Road located in the Waitemata Local Board area.

iv)        a bi-directional cycleway on the eastern side of New North Road linking with the Dominion Road cycle lanes, particularly with the likely demolition of the Dominion Road interchange

v)         proposed layout option (iii) between Alex Evans Street and Khyber Pass Road because it has one general vehicle lane each way and should be the safest

vi)        proposed layout (ii) of two general traffic lanes in each direction from Khyber Pass Road to Mt Eden Road because of the amount of traffic in this section.
