Have your say on 12km Te Whau pathway

Auckland Transport wants your feedback to refine the design of Te Whau Pathway.

The 12km path will link the Manukau Harbour at Green Bay Beach to the Waitematā Harbour at Te Atatu Peninsula along the western edge of the Whau River. It is a shared path designed for commuting and recreation for pedestrians, cyclists, mobility scooters, prams, and activities such as fishing and kayaking.

Parts of the pathway inside existing parks have been completed. Work is continuing on more path sections in parks and on the design of the boardwalk sections that will link those sections of the walkway to create a continuous path.

“This is an exciting time in the project as we begin to look in more detail at what the exact route will be,” says chair of the Whau Coastal Walkway Environmental Trust Iris Donoghue.

“We are sensitive to people in the area who will have this facility close to their property and we want to hear from them during the preliminary design phase. When it is completed the pathway will breathe new life into the area as it showcases some of the river’s distinctive environmental and historical features.”
