Councillors are being called out over Christchurch's cycleways debate.

In what's been called 'political grandstanding', Councillors Aaron Keown and Sam MacDonald are callingĀ  for the proposed design of a $19 million cycleway to be scrapped.

Christchurch City Councillor for the Heathcote ward, Sara Templeton told Chris Lynch some councillors are openly opposed to offering residents more transport options.

She says the growing number of people wanting to embrace greener forms of transport, like cycling, are being treated as a small minority not worth listening to.
