The Waitemata Board is happy to annouce the public opening for the first of their Greenways projects – the Cox Bay Boardwalk, which was widened during reconstruction so as to allow walkers and cyclists to share it better.
Come to tomorrow’s (Saturday 15th June) opening at 11:30am at Cox’s Bay Reserve. For more details, click here.
War Memorial Park Greenway Section Open
We have also been remiss in not calling attention to another piece of the Greenways network, this time in the Puketapapa area. Last Friday, Mayor Len Brown and Local Board Chair Richard Barter opened a further section of their growing Greenways network, this one through War Memorial Park.
The changes involved path widening, and replacing some steps leading onto a bridge over a local creek with a cycleable ramp. Read about the project here, and how the routes in Richard’s board area are the envy of many other areas in Auckland.
Also worth mentioning at this time is that CAA has been working with Auckland Transport and the Local Board on a new cycleway that will link War Memorial Park with the Mt Roskill Grammar School cluster and the cycleway bridge over the motorway at Keith Hay Park. This is a project which we understand is goign to happen relatively soon.
