New routes and connections
Paneke Pōneke is our plan for a citywide network of connected bike/scooter routes that will be combined with improvements for people walking and taking the bus.
The new bike routes planned in this area will fill gaps in the Kilbirnie network, complementing and better connecting the bike paths and lanes that are already in place.
The new connections will make it easier and safer to get places in the neighbourhood, including Kilbirnie shops, Lyall Bay beach, cafes and businesses, the airport, Kilbirnie pool, daycare centres, schools and sportsfields, and the hub of recreational and sports facilities at Kilbirnie Park. They’ll also make it easier to get to the ASB Sports Centre and across Cobham Drive to Tahitai, the waterfront pathways connecting to the city, Miramar and Te Motu Kairangi (Miramar Peninsula).
People in this area of all ages and abilities are benefiting from the changes that have already been made, and these will make Kilbirnie, Rongotai and Lyall Bay even better places to live now and in the future.
We're working on designs now that we'll be able to share with the community in early 2023.
