Glen Innes to Tamaki Drive Shared Path
Providing a vital link for the eastern suburbs of Auckland with the city centre.
New Zealand Transport Agency & Auckland Transport | Glen Innes, Auckland
Due for completion
We faced complex engineering problems, consenting issues and a site that covered several environmentally sensitive areas. In addition the fully separated shared path required us to design a solution that manages user conflict, difficult gradients, perceived safety issues and that connects communities to public transport along the route. Our ability to meet these challenges head on and deliver Section 1 within the tight timeframe is reflected in the high levels of client and stakeholder satisfaction to date.
The 7.3 km route is divided into the following four sections, recognising the different consenting and construction challenges of each:
Section 1 – Merton Road to St Johns Road (completed)
Section 2 – St Johns Road to Orakei Basin (mid-2017-mid 2018)
Section 3 – Orakei Basin boardwalk: (early 2017 to late 2017)
Section 4 – Orakei Basin to Tamaki Drive (late 2017 to late 2018)
We are pleased to advise that we are currently working on stages 2, 3 and 4. For more information about the route and its construction timelines, visit the Auckland Transport project page here: https://at.govt.nz/projects-roadworks/glen-innes-to-tamaki-drive-shared-path/
