Please feel free to email Aaron Hutchings at AT with any questions:

Walk, run and cycle from Auckland’s eastern suburbs to the Waitemata

Another key component of the Auckland Cycle Network, the 7km long Glen Innes to Tamaki Drive Shared Path, is on the horizon and it’s time to get involved and give Auckland Transport (AT) and the NZ Transport Agency some constructive feedback.

The project team will be on hand at a public open day this weekend (Saturday 22 November) to share designs, answer questions and gather feedback on draft designs. Come along, have a look at the plan and tell us what you think!

The path crosses the rail line near Purewa Cemetery, on the approach to Meadowbank Train station.

The $30 million shared pedestrian and cycle path will follow the eastern rail line from Merton Road near Glen Innes Station to Tamaki Drive and connect Auckland’s eastern suburbs to the city centre. It will be around four metres wide and constructed mostly in concrete with timber boardwalks used for short water crossings such as Orakei Basin. The project team aims to keep gradients as low as possible to mitigate the route’s sometimes hilly geography.

The Glen Innes to Tamaki Drive Shared Path will be well lit, connect with public transport facilities along the route and allow for future extensions in key areas. Constructed in four stages, the path is expected to be completed in late-2018.
