What to expect during construction

The development of the two-way bike path between Carlton Gore Road on Oriental Bay and Greta Point is a major project for the city.

Work on the section between Weka Bay and Little Karaka Bay is expected to resume in mid-April.

  • The work on the seaward side will start at Weka Bay and mainly involve installing new kerb and drainage channels, laying new asphalt and concrete paths, and changing road markings. A new balustrade will be installed where required.
  • Work hours are 9am to 4pm, Monday to Friday.
  • During these hours, the road will be down to one lane while the work happens.
  • Workers will manage the traffic with stop/go signs.
  • A 30km/h speed limit will be in place in and around the work zone.
  • It will take longer to travel through this area particularly 9am to 4pm, so take another route if you can or allow extra time.
  • Large vehicles and goods trucks that can’t use the Mt Victoria Tunnel will still be able to use the route.
  • People will be able to walk, run and bike through this area at all times, but will need to take extra care and follow the temporary diversions in place.
  • At times, people on bikes may have to get off and walk their bikes through the temporary pedestrian detour on the seaward side or share the road with other traffic. Kerb ramps will be installed.
  • As with all construction, there will be machinery operating at times but in general, the work shouldn’t be too noisy.
  • Parking and bus stops will be temporarily affected in some locations while work happens.
