Council is excited to announce that a new shared path for pedestrians and cyclists will be constructed on the road reserve along Weston Road. The path will be 2.1m wide and will be surfaced with chip seal,  beginning at 41 Weston Road and ending at the A20 in Essex Street.

Prior to the construction of the path, we will be considering not only the best alignment for the road reserve but ensuring full consideration is given to the safety of its users, the space available and the easiest path for residents and users.

This project forms part of the plan to connect urban recreational and cycle commuter routes and will be co-funded by Waka Kotahi.

Local firm Whitestone Contracting have been awarded the contract to construct the path with work scheduled to commence during July and August.
