The Grey Lynn Business Association – some thoughts on the importance of belonging to respected advocacy groups
When you are in business your natural focus is not to think about cycle-ways, bus stops and pedestrian crossings except when change has an adverse impact on your “business as usual” expectations. As a number of Grey Lynn businesses have found out, trying to stop the unstoppable or even rectify perceived wrongs becomes very difficult after the event. In fact if it wasn’t for the removal/relocation of trees and a perceived degradation of the West Lynn village environment the number of orange cones would be exploding exponentially as the chain of cycle ways engulfs the city. Cycling is a healthy choice for a city’s citizens but providing cycle ways within an existing urban landscape has its challenges.
