Update: Thank you to everyone to submitted to the Palmerston North Council. We will share news on the what’s happening with the pathway project as we hear it. (24 April, 2017).
Dear LAC Community
There is an opportunity to get Palmerston North Council to build a path along Walkers Road.
After the successful completion of the Longburn shared pathway, it has become even more evident that there is a need for a safe route for students of LAC and residents of Walkers Road.
As can be seen in the photo, there is currently not a safe space for cyclists or pedestrians to travel when large vehicles regularly commute along Walkers Road.
Pedestrians and cyclists often have to walk on the grass verge and avoid the narrow bridge near the entrance to Walkers Road.
LAC would like to encourage local students to make the most of the Longburn shared pathway and cycle to school, but this can’t be done without a pathway along Walkers Road.
For this to happen, we need as many submissions as possible to be sent to the Council to push this project forward.
If you can spare some time to help, please use the link below to submit an online application.
