The first motorway cycleway proved to be the catalyst to the growing series of connected cycle routes into and through Auckland city. ' Dale Knight Long ride: Dale Knight, left, with his father David Knight on a stretch of northwestern cycleway he helped create. Photo: JASON OXENHAM It's been a long ride but now the pedal is being pushed to the metal. Dale Knight has been given the green light by the Auckland City Coun- cil to install a bronze plaque to commemorate the work his father David Knight did to help to create motorway cycleways in Auckland. My father was instru- mental in getting the first cycleway route from Te Atatu to Pt Chevalier on motorway land,'' the Mt Albert resident says. That first piece of cycleway was the very beginning of a cycle route that now links to central Auckland with the west through to Hen- derson and beyond. That small step turned out to be the key feature of the system still developing today.'' In 1986 David and his cycleway pioneering peer, the late Kurt Breh- mer, began their fight to get a cycleway built along the northwestern motorway to link the city to the Waitakere Ranges. It took five years to lobby for a law change allowing cyclists and pedestrians access on motorway land plus further meetings, phone calls and letters to encourage the council and Transit New Zea- land to put it together. And on December 6, 1991, the first motorway cycleway was opened. I am very proud of the success my father has had in this field. The first motorway cycleway proved to be the catalyst to the growing series of connected cycle routes into and through Auck- land city,'' Dale says. David says the efforts paid off. A lot of families ride on this in the weekend. It's the only place that's safe in Auckland. A lot of people walk it too. It's absolutely brilliant,'' says the 70-year-old for- mer amateur bike racer. It didn't happen over- night but it did happen.'' IN BRIEF Kindy gala Bring the whole family along to the Waitakere Kindergarten Gala on November 14.

Avoidable accidents By NICOLA MURPHY Being called out to three motor vehicle accidents in less than eight hours has prompted firefight- ers to warn drivers to be careful. On McEntee Rd in Waitakere last Friday, a car had left the road and the driver was no longer at the scene. The second collision occurred at 10am the same day. A female driver backed out of a driveway on Swanson Rd and hit a motorcyclist. He escaped with minor cuts and scrapes. The third accident involved a driver who lost control and drove into a crash barrier on Don Buck Rd around 1.45pm. The driver had minor injuries. Senior Henderson firestation officer Jim McLane Mr McLane says drivers need to be careful while on our roads.
