Masterton District Council is working to make Masterton safer and easier for everyone to get around by bike.
The Council is proposing improvements for cyclists on Dixon Street as part of a wider cycling network we are creating within Masterton. The proposed routes in the cycling network will cater for all levels of experience and these routes will contribute to making Masterton an easy and safe place to cycle around.
Cycle lanes have already been implemented along Dixon Street from Church Street to Worksop Road. Masterton District Council are now asking the local community for their views on a proposed design to continue on road cycle lanes from Worksop Road to Kuripuni. This part of the cycling network has been prioritised for investigation, due to upcoming road resurfacing work which is programmed to occur in early 2018.
HAVE YOUR SAY!
We would love to hear from you! Consultation closes at 5.00 pm on Tuesday 6 February.
How to have your say:
Why is this the proposed option?
The proposed Dixon Street cycle route is designed for the enthused and confident cyclists and establishes safe on road lane widths for both vehicles and cyclists whist retaining parking on the east side of Dixon Street from Workshop Road to Norris Way.

Does this concept mean on-street parking spaces will be lost?
This proposal minimises on-street parking losses as much as possible but will require on-street car parking to be prohibited on the west side of Dixon Street and on the east side from Norris Way to Kuripuni.
Overall, approximately 80 parking spaces are lost.
