Curves to soothe your commute

You may not have spotted it yet as you zoom through spaghetti junction by car, but the old Nelson Street motorway off ramp is being converted into a cycleway.

The Nelson Street Cycleway will connect the existing cycle lanes to the city, linking the Grafton Gully Cycleway and the Northwestern Cycleway via a curvaceous steel ramp that is currently being lifted into place from Canada Street. If your cycle commute is from out west then this connection will slash minutes off your ride, not to mention take the pain and danger out of negotiating traffic around Upper Queen, Pitt Street and Karangahape Roads.

Looking forward to taking a spin over it in December!
