Wellington’s great harbour cycleway has moved a step closer to reality.
Plans have been revealed for a new $7 million shared cycling and pedestrian path around the capital’s bays between Waitangi Park and the Miramar cutting.
It will follow the waterfront along Oriental Parade, Evans Bay Parade and Cobham Drive.
The 3.9-metre-wide path will provide an almost seamless – and more scenic – cycle link between the central city and eastern suburbs that avoids the rountinely congested Basin Reserve roundabout and the compact streets of Newtown.
It’s a great area to cycle, walk and run – except on very windy days!
