We're making changes for people on foot and on bikes

This section of Evans Bay Parade, between Greta Point and Cobham Drive, requires further work and will likely be developed in the future.

Option likely to be developed: Two-way seaward-side bike path separated from the traffic lane and the footpath

Weka A

An example of the two-way bike path style being considered for this section.

Why this option?

We first consulted the public on suggested corridors and routes for safer and easier biking through the eastern suburbs in April/May 2016.

This option had more community support than the other option that was consulted on, and will connect with the Oriental Bay shared path and the two-way bike path being constructed along the harbour side of Cobham Drive. It will also be an important part of Te Aranui o Pōneke / Great Harbour Way. The proposed design provides a good level of protection for people on bikes. It is appropriate for a busy through route such as Evans Bay Parade, which has a lot of fast-moving traffic, including trucks and buses.

What’s next?

The Evans Bay project will be completed in two sections. This section of Evans Bay Parade, between NIWA at Greta Point and the Cobham Drive intersection, requires further work and will likely be developed in the future.

Section 1 is the section of Evans Bay Parade between Carlton Gore Road and NIWA at Greta Point. This section is currently under construction.
