Meadowbank to Kohimarama Shared Path
Section 2 of the Glen Innes to Quay Street shared path is currently under construction and will be finished in 2022.
Auckland Transport is now looking at connections to this path from both Kohimarama and Meadowbank that will give access to residents of these suburbs. They are proposing connections to John Rymer Place in Kohimarama, and to Gowing Drive in Meadowbank.
We have made a submission responding to AT's plans. Click here to see AT's proposal or here for our submission.
John Rymer Place
- AT is proposing a new shared path at John Rymer Place through a property owned by Watercare at 64 John Rymer Place. The shared path will follow down into the Pourewa Valley to connect with the Glen Innes to Tāmaki Drive shared path. This section has been designed to include new lighting, a new 3m - 4.5m wide shared path, a small bridge, a retaining wall, balustrades and native planting.
- Changes to John Rymer Place include introducing no stopping yellow lines to improve safety and visibility for all road users, and to reduce conflicts through the narrow road sections.
- The connection through John Rymer Place is more advanced and AT anticipates they could start construction later this year. This would align closely with the works happening now for the shared path and would mean they wouldn’t need to go back and re-dig what is currently being worked on.
- A new shared path at Gowing Drive connecting to the Glen Innes to Tāmaki Drive shared path. This shared path will need to cross the rail corridor and a steep section of the valley to connect to Gowing Drive.
- The connection through Gowing Drive is still under investigation so AT doesn't yet have detailed project plans. The area is steep, so the connection would need to curve down towards the train tracks, and they need to fully investigate rail track underpass and overpass options. Once a design has been fully investigated, AT will share this with residents for further feedback before confirming an outcome.
