New cycle and walkways coming soon

30 August 2005

New cycle and walkways coming soon

As part of Project Twin Streams, Waitakere City Council is building a cycle and walkway network alongside the Oratia, Lower Waikumete and Lower Opanuku Streams. The first stage of the network should be completed by autumn next year, with the rest by the following summer (2006). The first stage involves the following areas:

* Lower Oratia Stream, from Great North Road to Parrs Park
* Lower Opanuku Stream, from Great North Road to Border Road
* Ceramco Park in Glen Eden along the Waikumete Stream to the Oratia Stream

While the general location of the routes has been decided, there are still some details the Council needs to get right to ensure the network meets people's needs. Key issues include making sure the link and access points are in the right places, making the cycle and walkways safe and user friendly and reflecting local history and culture through design and art features.

To date, feedback regarding the cycle and walkway networks has been overwhelmingly positive. If you would like to see what is planned and have a say about the cycle and walkway network please feel free to attend the final drop-in day this weekend.

Saturday 3 September 2005, 1pm - 4pm, Bruce McLaren Intermediate School Hall, Bruce McLaren Road, Henderson.
