That’s why we’re building more cycleways and shared paths – to change the way the city moves and get more people using active transport – that’s walking, cycling and scooting. By 2020, we plan to have an active transport network that will make our city an even better place to live and do business.
Cycling on the road can be daunting, so we’re building three new shared paths and cycleways that will make it a safer and more enjoyable experience, especially for families.
So this summer, take the opportunity to get on your bike or go for a walk, whether you’re commuting, shopping, working on your fitness, or just for fun. It’ll be a first step towards changing the way our city moves.
We’re working on three major projects at the moment:
- The Wainuiomata Shared Path – a walking and cycling route that will provide safe access up and over the steep and winding Wainuiomata Hill Road.
- The Eastern Bays Shared Path – a walking and cycling route around Te Whanganui-a-tara (Wellington Harbour), from Fitzroy Bay in the east to Sinclair Head in the west.
- The Beltway Cycleway – a cycling spine to the east of the city, extending between Seaview and connecting to the Hutt River Trail at Taita Drive.
