Dear Editor:

Transport is Wellington’s most important issue these days. The transport system needs to be re-invented to prepare for a sustainable future.  It should be no different for Island Bay.

Simply put, there are four modes of local transport for residential areas, listed in order of importance: pedestrians, personal modes (bikes), public transport (bus), and the personal motor car.

Mayor Lester’s proposal seems to be reasonable for that at first glance, though perhaps too much car parking. The Island Bay Resident’s Association apparent desire to have their “big, wide parade back” is not keeping up with the times.
