Hamilton desperately needs access to electric scooters and bicycles
Pedestrians, cyclists, and scooter riders can share wider, smoother roads that may become a priority in Hamilton's infrastructure planning, and urban residents support the two-round choice of commuting to commute.
Hamilton City Councillors attended the Infrastructure Operations Committee meeting on Thursday during which they published a report on public feedback on the six-month trial of electric scooters in the city.
As of Wednesday, more than 1,800 people had responded to the board survey on scooters, and the vast majority claimed that they had brought Gospel to Hamilton.
Committee members have this information, and there are some speeches from public submitters, most of whom are scooter riders or cyclists who seek greater protection in the four-wheel motorcycle race, they delivered at the beginning of the meeting Speech.
"In terms of infrastructure, I think cyclists and scooters need the same thing... we are asking for separate bike lanes. I’m not talking about green dots. I’m talking about actual separate bike lanes. Ensure our safety.
"This is destroying the car's dominance."
Representatives of the student environment, Waikato, Hannah Huggan and Timi Barabas, urged the committee to pay attention to how future generations would use different forms of transportation to travel around the city.
Hogan said that "mini-transport" is also a non-negligible solution to the climate crisis.
"When we transition to a zero-carbon economy, it is our responsibility to change the way the people of Hamilton travel... Areas like the Central Business District should not be dominated by cars."
Louise Hutt, the owner of the electric scooter, also made a statement and revealed that the bumps and potholes on the trails and curbs loosened the important screws that fixed the handles of the equipment. It became obvious when she was driving at 15 kilometers per hour.
"If we want to extend the life of these devices, then improving our pedestrian path will be a big step."
Hutt missed the chance to be elected as a parliamentarian last year, and he also offered some suggestions to the parliamentarians from the Cycling Brotherhood.
"The green paint on the road is not a bicycle lane, and it has no effect on the safety of those who use it."
Congressman Ewan Wilson announced that the age of the scooter is approaching.
"During my tenure with the local government, sometimes I have been trying to find a reasonable way to carry out the infrastructure construction we need to do to ensure the safety of bicycles. In my opinion, there is no doubt that we need a dedicated bicycle lane With divider.
"Today I just realized... these scooters may be the reason why we need dedicated bike lanes, slashes and electric scooter lanes. No one can say that the community has not accepted this new paradigm."
The gathered politicians unanimously agreed to extend the trial period of the city's scooter for another 12 months, and an amendment proposed by Deputy Mayor Geoff Taylor, which would prevent Lime from being unkindly removed from its council contract Usurp while benefiting another provider for at least the next six months.
Cr Sarah Thomson, who makes employee suggestions, said companies that can rent electric bikes may be the city's next step.
"I think this morning's communication...does highlight the need for more urgent action on infrastructure and to ensure that all these [transportation methods] in our city can travel safely and ensure that those who are vulnerable and use our footpaths It is safe and able to travel carefree.
"We need a variety of equipment... we urgently need to face many challenges."
Taylor said his amendment gave Lyme "the guarantor they deserve" to enable him to continue working in Hamilton.
"Electric scooters will stay in Hamilton. They won't go anywhere now. Most people like them. The survey results are...very positive indeed. Lyme can do a lot to contribute to this. They have to come in and take responsibility, in our Of urban investment, rent warehouses, hire employees, and seize opportunities."
