The route - the most important connections
Paneke Pōneke is our plan for a citywide network of connected bike/scooter routes that will be combined with improvements for people walking, scooting and taking the bus.
We’ve made a start on improvements for people on buses and bikes from Newtown to the city. Similar changes are planned from the northern end of The Parade in Island Bay to Newtown via Adelaide Road, Luxford, Rintoul and Riddiford streets.
The Island Bay to Newtown connection project will make it easier and safer to get places in these neighbourhoods, including local shops, cafes and businesses, childcare centres, schools and tertiary institutions, hospitals and health services, community facilities, parks, sports and recreation.
We’re using adaptable materials so we can quickly install changes once the design is approved. This means people can start using the route sooner, then make suggestions to help refine the designs once they’re installed. Making changes in this way will help to get the bike network in place as quickly as possible so more people can benefit.
