Between 2015 and 2019, there were 16 crashes on this section of road, with six involving cyclists. By creating a much safer urban cycle network in Blenheim, Council is confident cyclist numbers will increase.
This Middle Renwick Road (SH6) cycle lane project:
Our vision is to create a safe, connected and convenient network of safe cycle routes around Marlborough. By doing so we aim to help make cycling a viable and enjoyable way to commute to and from work and school, to get around town, and for leisure.
You can see the long-term proposed cycle network by viewing Council's cycle network maps and the Marlborough Walking and Cycling Strategy (2019-29).
You can sign up to our newsletter to be kept in the loop regarding project progress and other walking and cycling initiatives.
We'll also post updates here, on our Facebook page, and in the Council feature in local newspapers.
