The vision for Aucklanders to safely travel between the Waitematā and Manukau harbours on a continuous pathway for pedestrians and cyclists is taking shape.

In December 2023 Auckland Council shared the news here on OurAuckland that construction on Te Whau Pathway had recommenced.  A little more than 3 months on, we have a video from the project to share with you.

As the behind-the-scenes aerial footage below shows, construction is underway on the section of the Te Whau Pathway, behind the Te Atatū South Boating Club that will connect Te Pae Kawau, Bridge Avenue Reserve and Horowai, Roberts Field. 

You can see a crane is in action and construction workers are on the job as the foundations for a boardwalk section of the pathway start to take shape.

The camera spans north to south over the mānawa (mangroves) in the Whau River where the boardwalk will eventually connect Horowai with the Northwestern Cycleway.

Construction on the Te Whau Pathway restarted in December 2023 and the estimated completion time for the boardwalk connecting the Northwestern Cycleway and Horowai Reserve is December 2026.

Te Whau Pathway is a partnership between Auckland Transport (AT), Ngāti Whātua Ōrākei, Te Kawerau ā Maki, the Whau and Henderson-Massey local boards, the government as a major funder, Auckland Council delivering the construction and working closely with Te Whau Pathway Environment Trust.

Te Whau Pathway follows a traditional Māori taonga waka (portage). Fully delivered, all sections of the proposed pathway will connect Manukau Harbour at Green Bay to the Waitematā Harbour at Te Atatū Peninsula.

We will keep you updated as work on the Te Whau Pathway progresses.
