Upper Harbour Motorway
6 August, 2011
OK OK - this has
got almost nothing to do with cycling, but maybe Motorway improvements will make
the real roads better for cyclists.
Today, a day
before the SH18 motorway was due to open, NZTA opened it
to pedestrians and, at 2:00pm, cyclists.
Several ACTA members turned up for the opening, and 4 of these had made it an
addendum to Bryan's Saturday Coffee Ride.
Looking west from the Trig Road Bridge.
And looking East. This was the entry point for the ride.
YEAH RIGHT!!!!! on all counts.
Tony, Bryan, Maurice and Susan joining in the fun.
A great afternoon out for all cyclists.
David, Ron and Susan homeward bound.
Heading up the hill to the Clarks Lane Footbridge.
Looking west from
the Clarks Lane Footbridge, on Helen's ride on June 12.
The ride today started where the road below disappears in the distance at Trig Road.
The last hill before the finish.
Just in case.
SH16 / SH18 interchange about 14 hours before it opens to traffic on Sunday 7th.
It will never look the same again.
