Community Pathway - Goals

The goal of this project is to create a safe walk and cycle track from the Upper Moutere village centre (school grounds) to the Moutere Hills Community Centre on the Moutere highway.

With this pathway we are trying to provide

  • safe passage for school children travelling on foot or by bike from the school to events at the community centre without being endangered by highway traffic
  • an attractive route for pedestrians and cyclists travelling from the North into the village centre; this could include visitors to events at the community centre proceeding to visit the village
  • an enjoyable and safe trail for a local afternoon walk, a morning run, relaxed rambling, or pushing a pram away from our busy country roads

If this trail can be created with success, it might also open up options to establish further tracks or walkways in our area.

We are currently in the process of finding a suitable route for this project and discussing options with landowners.
