Work has started on a new 400m walking track in Le Roys Bush that will connect existing tracks in the reserve to Hinemoa Street in Birkenhead’s town centre.
The project is part of the Kaipātiki Connections Network Plan and a priority for Kaipātiki Local Board.
Implementation of the network plan will enhance the existing network, eventually creating connections from Akoranga Drive to Beach Haven.
Kaipātiki Local Board Chair Kay McIntyre says the project is an important step in meeting the board’s objective of a connected and accessible Kaipātiki.
“We are working to make sure all parts of Kaipātiki are well connected and that people can walk within and beyond the local board area,” she says.
“This project is a great step forward in meeting that goal and also in celebrating Le Roys Bush and making it more accessible for residents to enjoy.”
The new track is scheduled to be completed in late April.
