New Māngere cycling and walking paths

Published: 6 September 2016

Children from Nga Iwi Primary School were among the first to use new walking and cycling paths in Māngere.

They were using the almost-complete Te Ara Mua Future Streets, a combination of shared paths and protected cycle lanes to and around Māngere town centre.

The paths will be officially opened at a community event on Thursday 22 September.

What has changed?

The main improvements are protected cycle lanes on Mascot Avenue and a new community trail that winds through the quiet roads of Windrush Avenue and Pershore Place, connecting Mascot Avenue with the town centre.

Massey Road will also have improved pedestrian crossings, new plantings and the Māngere town centre will have improved connections and a new pou totem.

Project partners

The Te Ara Mua Future Streets project is delivered by Auckland Transport with partners Māngere-Ōtāhuhu Local Board, the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment and the NZ Transport Agency.

Auckland Transport is working with project partners Auckland Council and the government through the NZ Transport Agency and the Urban Cycleways Programme on a $200m programme of cycle improvements from 2015 to 2018.
