27/11/2018 3:57 p.m.
The Kamo shared path is a shared 6.5 kilometre off-road route that will follow the existing railway corridor that runs north / south through the area.
The route is designed to:
- provide safer access to the centrally located schools in Whangarei, and
- provide a connection for residential areas north of the city through to the Whangarei CBD, the Auckland University Campus, and off-road links to key recreational areas such as Kensington Park.
This shared path is expected to attract over 600 people a day.
Working in partnership with Bike Northland and Bikes in Schools, this key infrastructure will encourage more children to cycle to school by providing safe access for over 5,200 students who attend schools within 500 metres of the new facility.
The route will separate cyclists from high-volume traffic and reduce pressure on State Highway 1 by providing an alternative off-road transport option.
This Kamo route will complete the three primary routes of the Whangarei cycleway network - which include the new Onerahi and Raumanga / Maunu routes.
