Annual Plan Submission 2024

DCC AP 2024

Feedback submissions are now open for the 2024-2025 DCC Annual Plan, and we need you to let the Council know that you support the Tunnels Trail project from Mosgiel through to Caversham and want to see it underway as soon as possible.


The design for the Tunnels trail between Mosgiel and Caversham through the two old rail tunnels has been submitted and we wait for NZTA / Waka Kotahi to decide if they will co-fund it with the DCC.  The Tunnels Trail project is not a nice-to-have bit of additional cycle track for a small minority, but an essential and well overdue part of Dunedin’s transport infrastructure. It will never be cheaper to build it than right now.

It’s extremely important for every person who supports this idea to let the Councillors know of your support via the Submissions form. Simply put, if you don’t tell them, they won’t know.

We need YOU to tell the Council you support this plan and want to see it implemented as soon as possible!

What can I do?

Let the Council know you support the plan to proceed with the Tunnels Trail from Mosgiel to Caversham by filling in the DCC Submission form. It only takes a couple of minutes. This needs to be done by [updated] noon, Wednesday 15 May ‘24. Take a few minutes and do it now.

Here’s some text to get you started:

I support the Tunnels Trail project to develop a Shared Path/Cycleway between Mosgiel and Caversham. The Tunnels trail project should be funded without delay, and given high priority, with a focus of delivering operational sections as soon as possible.  The tunnels trail is Dunedin's internal transport corridor between the coast and the Plain, as well as our link to the wider Otago cycleway network.


Click on the text above and copy it (Cntl-C), then head over to the DCC Submission form to fill in the form. In the ‘Is there anything else you would like to tell us?’ box (3rd one down) paste the above text (Cntl-V), add in anything else you want to say, and complete the form. You don’t have to speak, but there is the opportunity to book a time and do so.
