Many cyclists riding out west will be aware of the clip-on bridge that brings the Northwestern Cycleway across the creek between Henderson (Central Park Drive) and Te Atatu. As part of the motorway widening works in the area, the cycleway proper will be extended, and this narrow and somewhat dangerously surfaced clip-on will be removed – to be replaced by a full-width bikeway bridge. Can’t say we will miss the old bridge – though it must have been a great improvement once, when it was first added.
NZTA also confirmed that a temporary cycle bridge is included in the construction contract – so access without any significant detours is to be retained. Great to hear.
