Māngere-Ōtāhuhu locals took to the newly completed Te Ara Mua Future Streets trail on foot, bikes, scooters, skateboards and even unicycles when it opened in September.
A free family event was held to celebrate the completion of the community trail, which has improved the walking and cycling connection between Waddon Place and Mascot Avenue.
Plenty of activities
The project also included new lighting and upgrades around the town centre. Families enjoyed competitions, treasure hunts, guided walks, face-painting, ‘selfie stops’, and even the chance to make a pedal-powered smoothie.
The project is a partnership between the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment, Māngere-Ōtāhuhu Local Board, Auckland Transport and the NZ Transport Agency.
