Work starts on final stages of central city cycle loop

Published: 14 July 2017

Phase two of the Nelson Street Cycleway has started, with phase three to follow.

Construction of phase two of Nelson Street Cycleway from Victoria Street through to Pakenham Street East on Market Place began in June and work is expected to be complete by September 2017.

You'll be able to have your say on plans for Nelson Street phase three in the coming months. Designers are thinking about how best to serve cyclists along Market Place, as well as a connection to the Quay Street cycleway via Customs Street West and Lower Hobson Street.  

When it's completed, the Nelson Street Cycleway will form a crucial part of the cycle network in Auckland, helping to connect the shared off-road pedestrian and cycling path on Upper Queen Street to the waterfront at Quay Street.

Westhaven to City section one also starting soon

Construction will start at the end of July on section one of the Westhaven to City cycle route, which provides a direct connection for cyclists between Westhaven and the City.

Section one of the route travels from Westhaven Drive, along Beaumont Street, Gaunt Street and Viaduct Harbour Avenue, connecting to the Nelson Street cycleway on Customs Street West near the intersection with Market Place.
