City Council urged to require bike lanes on Waialae Avenue

By Gordon Y.K. Pang


Bicycle advocates gave city officials today a petition with more than 1,000 signatures urging that bicycle lanes be installed along Waialae Avenue as part of a major road improvement project in Kaimuki.

A short time later, the City Council Transportation Committee advanced a resolution creating a policy that requires planners  to consider walking, bicycling and other non-vehicular modes of transportation when they design a road.

About 60 bicyclists and their supporters held a rally urging the city to install bike lanes as part of a $9.4 million rehabilitation project for Kaimuki streets including Waialae Avenue, the major surface street in that section of East Honolulu.
