Pt Chevalier boardwalk improves access to coast

Publish Date : 03 Oct 2016

A new 171m boardwalk in Point Chevalier was opened on Saturday 1 October.

It crosses the mangrove plantation beside the Waitematā Harbour near Eric Armishaw Park. The boardwalk was built as part of the NZ Transport Agency’s Waterview Connection project.

Connecting Auckland

The boardwalk is one of several community facilities being built by the Well-Connected Alliance, which is constructing the Waterview Connection on behalf of the New Zealand Government and the NZTA.

More walkways opening soon

Next year, the Eric Armishaw Boardwalk will be extended further into Point Chevalier, and will link with other walkways to provide better access to Waterview and communities beyond.

Project on track

The Waterview tunnels are on track to open in early 2017 to connect the Northwestern and Southwestern Motorways. This will complete the Western Ring Route.
