Northern Pathway - Westhaven to Akoranga Project
Following the announcement from the Minister of Transport this morning (Friday 4 June 2021), we are now able to confirm that the preferred option for the Northern Pathway, Westhaven to Akoranga is a separate structure for walking and cycling alongside the Auckland Harbour Bridge.
This will provide a more enduring solution than the original within the New Zealand Upgrade Programme which, as you know, was a shared path attached to the side of the Auckland Harbour Bridge.
The Northern Pathway will become a key part of the strategic transport network and create a world class link for people to travel across the harbour on foot and on bikes for generations to come.
We want to assure you that we will keep you as informed as possible but need to take some time to continue to develop the design now that it has been endorsed. In the meantime, further information is available on our project webpage.
