Auckland Waterfront is a real powerhouse in Auckland’s transformation to the world’s most liveable city. And to their great credit, they are strongly behind cycling as one of the tools to achieve this for their area – the waterfront.
This started from… humble… beginnings (I seem to remember that one of the targets for the Wynyard Quarter area, many many years back in Auckland City Council times, was to roughly double the amount of cycling – from 1% to 2%!). But nowadays, the Waterfront Boulevard – a walk and cycleway spanning from Herne Bay to Tamaki Drive – has become one of their key transformation projects, achieving the greatest public support of all proposals in the Waterfront Plan. And of course they strongly support a path across the Auckland Harbour Bridge as well.
In our Cycle Summit video, hear Angelika Cutler from Waterfront Auckland give you a recap of what has been achieved, and what is still to come for cycling.
