Cycling masterplan

A number of projects designed to make things easier and safer for people on bikes and on foot will continue through 2019/20 as part of our cycleways programme. These include:

  • Cobham Drive
  • Evans Bay
  • Kilbirnie connections.

While we expect to see the projects above taking shape, or being completed in 2019/20, more design work and community engagement is required to decide how to provide safer bike routes in Berhampore, Newtown and Mount Cook.

We aim to secure as much Government support as we can for work in the south (up to 75 percent). So on the advice of the NZ Transport Agency, we will plan all the connections between the south coast and the city and seek funding for the whole lot in one go, including the planned redesign of The Parade in Island Bay.

Work in Island Bay is also subject to the outcome of court proceedings initiated by the Island Bay Residents Association.

This means construction on the following projects may not begin until 2020/21:

  • Newtown Connections – Berhampore, Newtown and Mount Cook
  • Island Bay redesign.
