Councillors approved this section of the Miramar Town Centre project on 23 November 2017.
The next stage of this project is to complete the detailed design, construction plans, and pre-construction safety audit. No decisions have been made yet on when this project will be constructed.
A two-way bike path at kerb height separates people on bikes from the traffic, and encourages less-confident riders to use the path.
The two-way bike path through Miramar cutting will connect Miramar with the Cobham Drive and Evans Bay bike paths now under construction, and the safer new bike routes in Kilbirnie and to Newtown. It would also link to other proposed routes in Miramar and future phase 2 options for Miramar Avenue in the town centre.

Enterprise Miramar Peninsula, a group of local business people, and Wellington City Council transport planners have looked for the best ways to redevelop Miramar Avenue, while balancing the competing demands on this very busy stretch of road.
Their plan takes into account the needs of residents and businesses while enhancing the urban environment.
The plan covers lane widths, speeds, painted median strips, driveways, existing safety issues, roundabouts and bus stops.
