The section of the Rapanui – Shag Rock Cycleway from Linwood Park to the Ferrymead Bridge was approved for detailed design and construction by the Infrastructure, Transport and Environment Committee on Thursday 30 March 2017. This followed a number of changes that were made as a result of consultation.
The changes include:
- widening the shared path from three metres to four metres where possible along the route
- adding local connections into the cycleway on Linwood Avenue
- adding cyclist priority and detectors at intersections
- upgrading the Cranley Street u-turn bay.
