Oriental Bay to Greta Point

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 from Weka Bay to Greta Point, are complete

Construction on the remaining section between Little Karaka and Balaena bays will be completed in September 2024. This is the narrowest part of the route and work has included strengthening and upgrading the seawalls at both bays.
