Firstly, the news update.
Local paper Otago Daily Times had a recumbent cycle on the front page during the week. A good news story with an excellent photo. http://www.odt.co.nz/news/dunedin/156122/turning-heads-trike
Their second piece of good news was an update on the Maia to Portobello cycleway and the difficulty brought about by the building of the Dunedin Stadium. The upshot is that some car parks are to go to make way for the cycleway which will link the two already developed sections of cycleway. http://www.odt.co.nz/news/dunedin/156470/losing-parking-gaining-cycleway
This is great news as last November we cycled this section around the stadium and had great fear and difficulty getting across the road sections.
Good to see that some carparks will be gone to make way for the cycleway. There is parking available around the rear of the nearby flats.
