We're making changes for people on foot and on bikes

This section of the route goes along Oriental Parade from Carlton Gore Road and along Evans Bay Parade as far as Greta Point. The paths, seawalls and landscaping from Oriental Bay to Little Karaka Bay, and Weka Bay to Greta Point, are now complete

Construction work on the remaining section between Little Karaka and Weka bays is expected to resume from mid-April. When this work is completed, the last of the old on-road bike lanes will be removed and there will no longer be the need for people riding here to transition between the bike path and the road.

  • The two-way asphalt bike path will be between the footpath and the road, at the same level as the footpath. It will be 3m wide wherever possible, and narrower in some places where space is constrained.
  • The exposed aggregate concrete footpath will generally be 2m wide but this will vary depending on the space available.
  • Most parking will remain along this stretch.
  • New seawalls at Little Karaka Bay (60m long) and Balaena Bay south of the toilet block (25m long) up to footpath level will help to create more space.
  • New balustrade fence for the whole length.
  • Parking on the seaward side will be against the kerb, with a buffer between the kerb and bike path to give people space for getting in and out of cars.
  • Bus stops on the seaward side will have a buffer between the kerb and bike path for people getting on and off buses.
  • A new pedestrian crossing will be installed at Balaena Bay and a safer crossing point at Weka Bay.
  • The Maida Vale Road intersection will be made safer.

These bus stop relocations were approved by Councillors in 2018 following community feedback in 2017.

Detailed design for this area between Little Karaka Bay and Weka Bay has involved more discussion with some local residents.

  • Northbound bus stop at 212 Evans Bay Parade relocated to be outside 208 Evans Bay Parade.
